"Keep busy doing the things you love and destiny will find you"
Howdy Bloggers , another art journal update.
Do you struggle finding appropriate words to incorporate on to your art journal pieces?
I'm not a big lover of cliches,or single word titles(not that i haven't used them before) but finding something that is interesting and works with my pieces is sometimes difficult.
For these two pieces I've grabbed my phone and googled 'life & love' quotes for the above piece and 'heart' for this piece below.Up pops a a plethora of known and obscure quotes and one finds the best quote that work for ones piece.
" Let my soul smile through my heart ,
and my heart smile through my eyes,
that I may scatter rich smiles to sad hearts "
For this piece I tried to make it a little random.
So I love listening to music when i get arty,it helps my work flow
and I find it inspiring to the whole creative process.
This week here in Oz ,it was Australia Day and
the annual Triple J Hottest 100 is always a part of our celebration.
As I'm listening to the radio,I wanted to create a piece that incorporated words into my background. so I shazzam'd the Courtney Barnett song on the radio, Pedestrian At Best and used the words within the song to facilitate the background and the direction of the piece.
From that ,this Silhouette piece was born.
I would love to know how you add journaling to your art?
I just want to put a big shout out to to Lifebook 2015 and to Kim Price for gifting it to me last year.
I feel like I personally grew so much artistically (and i haven't even finished the years lessons),and today I a snapped a few photos of the faces that I have created in my art journal over that last 6 months
