I always invite my muse to come into my studio so I thought it was only reasonable that I pay her a visit over spring break a few weeks back. Where does she live? In Turks and Caicos. How do I know she lives here? Because when I am there I am inspired like no where else. Not the most scientific way to track my muse- but it works for me…Here are some of the friendly fish from my morning snorkeling that sparked this art journal page.
A page in my homemade journal created using Gelli prints.
The mermaid is by my daughter (I just traced it).
I brought my Copic markers with me to the beach. I haven’t used them much but I decided it was time to get them out. I scribble journaled around the edges & colored in the mermaid.
The Pointy Circles stencil by Julie Balzer became colorful fish as I added layers of paints to the mermaid and fish. The string that holds the book together almost looks like the mermaid has been caught in a fishing line…perhaps I caught my muse?
