A year in the life of an art journal January 15th prompt
Finally got around to doing some art journaling! Yay! This is for A year in the Life of an art journal's first prompt of the year.
THE PROMPT: Word
ie: along the lines of One Little Word, choose one word that embodies the way you want your year to be LIVED.
THE STUFF: Imagery
ie: Use images, clippings... all to create the FEELING of the word you choose.
THE TECHNIQUE: PAINT/DOODLE
ie: paint and doodle on your images to further create the emotion of your word.
I chose the word play...we just had our all employee conference out in Vegas last week and the theme for our year is Play to Win! I thought that would be a good, fun, lighthearted word for me to use this year.
The "stuff" I used - I am using flash cards for my pages this year, so the one onthe right side has 6 + 12, june 12th is my birthday, so I thought I'd leave that exposed. The play to win is the sticker from the folder from our conference last week, and the strip of numbers just kind of went along with my thoughts from vegas.
The technique - I covered the flashcards in green paint, then added some blue to match the play to win sticker. I then doodled a star and drew around the letters in win. I haven't scrapped or art journaled in forever!!!!! So it felt good to get to it again.
So come on over and join us at A year in the life and follow along with the prompts. It's going to be a great year!
