All I have managed to do creatively is start preparing some backgrounds for an online art journaling course I am taking. I had been playing around with the idea for a while, and enjoyed the Soul Journaling stuff, so decided to just go for it. I signed up for Visual Journalism 101 with Pam Carricker details here. So far I have only managed to watch the video and read the download for week 1 and start my backgrounds. I have managed to slap a layer of paint on, then leave it to dry, then do another layer the next day. This first pic shows one with 3 layers of paint so far.
This one is a bit further along with some "imperfect" stamping (a very good technique for me as I find perfect stamping a bit of a challenge!) and some textures added. There is some clear gesso stamping you can't see which is going to be used as a resist once it dries thoroughly, then I get to add some "fly poo" ROFL. I used a Paperartsy mini text stamp for this one, and I have done another one with the same colours but using a music stamp for variety.
I haven't completed my 52 in 10 prompt 3 this week. The prompt was to think about what advice you would give your younger self. I know what I want to say, but I'm not sure how to say it, so I'm procrastinating. I've decided I am going to move on to prompt 4 which is up today and come back to prompt 3. I am preparing one of these background for it though once I am ready to journal my thoughts.
I'm also waiting to see what Document 2010 is all about. The first prompt goes live tomorrow, when I will be on route to Birmingham for a two day visit to a furniture trade show, so I won't get to find out properly until Tuesday night! Looks like another busy week ahead :(
