Well, actually I can think of a hundred excuses right now for not getting things done. Other than the "usual busy", there is also "getting ready for the holiday busy"! Right?
This is why I love some fast and fun creative time without any thinking. I simply decided to open my journal and do whatever it said!
I created the right side of the page first, using my Oil Pastels to color my page and the charcoal pencil to write the words and draw the outlines. I did discover by accident that my heat gun really smoothed out the Oils Pastels which also made it a little easier to write over. My 2 prompts were to paint it red and draw it in miniature. I loosely interpreted that to draw it in red and stamp something in miniature, lol I just love doing things my way. :)
The page to the left said to drop ink on it. First I wrote the words "No Excuses" with my white Oil Pastel crayon on the blank page to act as a resist to the ink. In retrospect I wish I had A. Drew it harder or B. not used a Dylusion spray that had the white opaque ink in it....or maybe both? It almost worked but it wasn't defined as well as I wanted it to be.
So I went back over the letters with some of the Deco Arts paints to make the wording stand out better..
Simple and fun and much needed to release some holiday stress. I hope that you can squeeze in some art therapy too and relax during this busy time!
