A simple page but a page I needed today. Sometimes I need to remind myself I have the strength and courage to do what I know I need to do. I feel like this page needs more, but I am stopping here for now. This is a busy art month – and when it rains it pours! I’m linking up to AEDM & Just Journals.
This started as smudges and smears of leftover red paint. The yellow was made with my new Inktense blocks. Oh, it is such a vibrant yellow!
My yellow Souffle pen made the doodle circles.
The red smears called for words and these are the 2 I have been thinking about today. Just the black looked too blah. When I traced it with the yellow Souffle pen I was pleased.
As I look at the work by artists I admire, it is often the little touches that make their work so powerful. I was amazed at what a simple thing, like outlining the words, did to the page. Do you have any little touches you add to your pages?
It is so wonderful that you can find comfort in your art journal. Great powerful colors with powerful words. 🙂
I love the sunny colours and text, just what I need today, too! What is a soufle pen? Have a nice weekend! Hugs from Germany, Valerie
A souffle pen is by sakura. I like it more than regular gel pens because they always clog on me. The souffle pens are very juicy and show up well on dark colors.
COLOR! I love color, and these are amazing. And outlining the words was a very nice touch for sure.
Great journal page! The red and yellow are perfect together, and you’re right about little details. I love adding dots to many of my journal pages and paintings.
The little touches can really make a huge difference. Your journal page is eye-catching….great colours and composition!
Great page! The perfect mix of bold colors and words.
Nice! Bright and bold! 🙂
I love the bright, bold colors in your journal page. I really like the way the white outline around the words looks too. You are so right…it is the tiny details that often make the page! 🙂
Ooh! I love it!
Hi Carolyn! thanks for your sweet comment on my blog via AEDM, great to meet such a colorful creative soul. Great how you share your process, that is truly inspiring. Love your ambrella painting. Wishing you much joy on this november journey.
That souffle pen is cool! Your spread is very colorful! Strength and courage are two important tools to keep on hand in today’s world!
