I am having so much fun with this class. I'm learning to think differently when I art journal. I like that we are concentrating on words. I like that I have to think to make the lesson work with the supplies I have on hand. I felt like a giddy kid when I finished this page. I'm learning so much and I'm so pleased with myself.
Use Your Words by Carolyn Dube - Lesson Two
We were tasked with choosing a word and then to use other words to tell about that the one we chose. I used ART because I'm having so much fun and I'm feeling so confident since I got back to my art. We were to concentrate on using different fonts, sizes and place of the letters. This was really fun for me because I didn't have to worry about my words being straight or even. I used freedom as one of my words because art journaling has really encouraged me to let go of perfectionism.
I will admit I started over because I spelled confidence wrong the first time. That was big enough for me to want to begin again. Note the date: even this lesson reminds me that playing and finding joy in my art is more important than having the date upside down! That didn't bother me in the least. I got to laugh at myself.
Stamps are by MaVinci**. I used Stampin Up markers to make my rainbow colored letters. Spray ink is Adirondack by Ranger and I used a Zig pen for the writing. I also used Painter Tape to cover my words when I sprayed the ink.
