This time the prompt is Owls. Now still being new at this fun art technique I have watched several videos and didn't realize this is a going thing. The art journaling and mixed media art work. Remember I have been in a sheltered world for the last 24 years and just now immerging like a butterfly I suppose out of it's little comfy home. Well, I am certainly not a butterfly but you get the picture.
I discovered the magazines from Somerset Studio magazines, oh if you haven't discovered them and want to play with the mixed media or any of their many subjects RUN to the book store. These magazines are a treasure to behold. Several years ago, I mean several, a sweet friend--Lynn, gave me one of the magazines. I was so busy with photography then I just glanced at it, thought it was pretty and then put it up and thought one day I will have time to look at it. Well I did and oh what a treat it was, so wondered if they still printed it. That was the discovery of the century to me. Now nothing like Christopher Columbus did but in my mind it was.
I was looking at one I purchased and there were the cutest owls in it. So I looked and read the article and thought I might use it one day. Well lo and behold our journal prompt for this time is Owls. The artist is Juliette Crane and she gave wonderful directions on how to paint these little guys. So this is what I did for my prompt.
There are lots of layers on text, paint of all kinds on here including acrylic, oil pastels, water soluable wax pastels and the wonderful words I added Someday I will fly.
I drew the little owl and painted her and she was the last thing I applied to my journaling pages. I hope you enjoy it. Oh be sure and click on the picture and you can see it larger. Have fun if you try it.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world.
