Hi! If you're here for the "Art of Wild Abandonment" Bloghop, you have probably just arrived from Karen Maldonado's blog. This is a HUGE hop and you are now more than half way through. :) Kudos to you if you have stuck with us this far. :) There is so much talent out there and I'm having a blast checking out all the inspiration...I hope you are too! Don't forget to continue on by visiting Sheryl Callan Meilahn here. And if you haven't started from the beginning, you can join in on all the excitement by clicking here to learn all about it.
When I first stumbled across Junelle Jacobsen's art, I immediately fell in love with her style! So when Christy Tomlinson announced that she was partnering up with Junelle to teach an art journaling class, I was absolutely giddy! It has been worth every penny! I have soaked up the videos and although I haven't had as much time as I would like to create art, I've been squeezing some in here and there.
Here's a look at a little bit of what I've created so far. Some of these pieces are from the art lessons we learned in class, so they may look similar to what you may have already seen throughout the hop.
This was my first entry in my new art journal. I pretty much copied Junelle's idea and added my own meaningful words.
I made my little nest from thin hemp string.
White Sharpie paint pen...my new favorite for highlights!
Silly little bird!
This is watercolor on gesso. I loved drawing the peas! I never would have thought of something so simple and creative without Junelle's perspective. So fun and playful!
"So Many Ideas"
Another one of Junelle's ideas I stole. Hers was about laundry...mine is about all the creative ideas that are floating through my head. It seems there's never enough time to get them all onto paper or canvas. :)
"Bright & Beautiful"
Our neighbors have a small farm. This spring I have loved watching the baby animals romp and play together. This little calf caught my attention because she has a nearly perfect heart on her forehead. I attempted to capture her in watercolors. I'm such an amateur! :)
Well that's it for now! I have a sheep canvas I have finished (so cute!!), but I will wait and post it tomorrow. This class has been so much fun! I hope you will consider taking it. You can sign up at any time here. Don't forget to check out the next blog in our giant bloghop! Thanks for visiting!
