Hello colorful creative souls! I am very much looking forward to a 3 day weekend of playtime in my studio. But before the weekend begins, I'm here to share a very quick art journal spread that celebrates our first 4 featured Gelatos® in the 52 Weeks of Color campaign: Lemon, Snow Cone, Margarita Mix, and Guava!
This art journal page started off very neat and clean, but took a quick turn when some emotions got the best of me and I covered a lot of my pages with black Chalkboard Paint. I'm so thankful that art is a part of my life so I can use it as a stress reliever! So anyways, I started with a base of Gelatos® Snow Cone and Margarita Mix that I blended with a wet paintbrush...
I revisited this page a couple days later, when I was in a much better mood :) and decided to brighten it back up with some flowers. I outlined the flowers with Gesso and a brush. Once the Gesso dried I blended the petals with Guava Gelatos, the centers with Lemon Gelatos, and outlined with Snow Cone Gelatos. I also added some very loose details with my Paper Crafter Crayons™.
Raise your words, not your voice.
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
