Well its been a long time coming but I've finally finished The Elements of Art Journaling course. Not that its been a chore, but I've just not felt like doing any crafting for a while. It happens every now and then and I say I can't be bothered but its more than that. It usually means I'm too tired to do anything. And that's how its been for most of this month.
Anyhoo, here are my final two pages. The first is the fire page. For this page Effy told us to art to music. This is not unusual for me, as anyone who knows me will attest to. Then she said to just enjoy ourselves and make a 'hot mess'. Now this is more difficult for me as I'm a perfectionist and messes just don't come easy. So I started with red Ecoline ink and blew it around the pages. Good basis for a messy page....or so I thought.
I then painted Stewart Gill paints in cerise on one page and orange on the other. This is when I realised my mistake. Ecolines are water based and they just ran and mixed with the paint. Ah well...lesson learned. Once I got the pages painted I closed the journal and squished the pages together and it gave a lovely texture. This is where I stopped and thought about the words associated with fire. One of them is anger.
I realised I am ANGRY!!!
