I recently had a little adventure in exploring my painting self.
It was a blast exploring and playing, and I even quite like the end result:
I also quite like the idea of drawing inspiration for work in different mediums. Perhaps even taking some techniques I used in a painting and translating them on a scrap layout. And, since the painting above is framed and happily hung in my home, I think I might like to try out a similar look for my album.
To start, I have chosen a patterned paper with a repetitive design that will hopefully lend itself to lots of painterly play:I have my painting pulled up on my phone, and my Marks-A-Lot marker at the ready:
First up - a little doodly doo and some white craft paint:
Then, some watercolor fun! I should mention that I have been super inspired lately by Celine Navarro's videos on Two Peas. I just love the way she uses media!
After some watercolor play, I also added a bit of glitter while my white paint was still wet:
And then, some more square-ish elements using the shape of my brush, followed by a bit of handcut circle action:
Now, I would like to add in more linear elements to balance out the circular, so I have some handcut vellum... and clouds, but those obviously aren't linear. They are indeed fun though, aren't they?
There they are all placed around, with my photos to boot!
Washi and Title:
And, you know the drill... the usual pen work and such was added until I had this:
Lots of fun media and texture:
Inspired by my painting. So fun! Now... I wonder how it would go in reverse? Perhaps a painting inspired by a layout? Hmmmmm....
