|It's time for the word for week 3 of the #ArtLove52 art journal challenge! This week's word is FOCUS.|
This journal page came together quite quickly. I knew what colors I wanted so I just started to apply them to my page with my fingers. Then I added some stamping with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black and two stamps from my stash. I also added some stenciling with three different stencils in the blue, dark brown and Titan Buff acrylics to match the background.
I chose the text when the page was finished, but I had a hard time deciding how to apply the text to the page itself. The background turned out dark so I knew I couldn't use black. And my handwriting is so bad that I couldn't write it on with white gel pen. Hahaha. Besides white seemed too stark for this page. So I found a font I really liked and printed it on card stock. I added some Antique Linen and Ground Espresso Distress Ink to the card stock and glued it down.
I recently decided to simplify things as much as I can. I tend to get so busy dealing with so many things that I get overwhelmed and want to just shut down. I'm going to try and simplify as much as I can and focus only on the melody of my life, and not all the other fluff that goes into a song. Make sense? I want to enjoy the things that matter most to me. Don't worry, art happens to be one of those things! But I'm done worrying about things that I think other people think I need to be doing.
|So, on that note, lol. Thank you for stopping by to view my Week 3 art journal page for the #ArtLove52 challenge. Last week's word was Winter, you can see my post for this word here.|
Get ready...next week's word is BRAVE!
