The Summer of Color theme this week is Blue. I was having trouble deciding on what to do so I decided to grab one of my books and find the word blue and see if the words on the page would inspire me. It worked! Now, I should have either gessoed or sealed the page before using water on it, and I knew that, but I was working on the sofa because I didn’t feel well and I was just too lazy to take it to the art room. So the blue lady is a bit blotchy, but she has other things on her mind so I don’t think she is bothered by it. This is inktense pencil, water, and a couple of my hand carved stamps in my art journal.
HOT TIP: If you use a book that has been indexed by Google in snippet view, you can use Google Books to look up a word, such as blue, and it will tell you 3 or 4 pages that contain that word. It’s much easier than skimming the book, hoping to find the word by luck!
Fun News: I just found out that I won the title of Wizard of Whimsy again this week! I’m tickled pink. I love being a wizard! This week, it was for my goofy little One Line Owl. 😀 We can always use more entries over there, if anyone would like to play along.
