Art Prompt: Terrific Texture

I love texture! We usually think of texture as something we feel with our sense of touch, but in art texture is also something that we can see. The artist I think of when I think 'cool texture' is always Christy Tomlinson. Her art is free and playful and happy. She doesn't over-think, she seeks beauty in imperfection and she uses her hands. Love her style!

This video shows her creating a canvas, but the texture techniques she uses are so great to use in your art journals. A collage of ripped paper, random stamping and some finger painting brings instant interest.

Enjoy the video:

The Prompt for this week is: Flowers.

Art Prompt: Paint the Rainbow

Hello Artists!

Finally back with you after a week of 'flu confined me to bed. Several different prescription medicines later I am approaching human. I even managed to sit upright long enough to start this page in one of my journals:
I love that Prima stencil!

For this week's Journal Journey Prompt, I am sharing one of my favourite videos from Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday series. She uses Gelatos to make a beautifully colourful background and adds a really great quote: "Too much ego will kill your talent"

Share your journal page based on this week's prompt in the Facebook Community. Look forward to seeing you there. 

Until next time,
Happy Arting!
