Making Your Mark (Doodles & Mark Making)
Art Challenge: Make a Custom Element
Journal Prompt: “Ride the energy of your own unique spirit.” – Gabrielle Roth
As you can see by now, flowers have a been a reoccuring element in my journal so far. So naturally I have chosen it as my custom element for this piece. If my unique spirit had a color, it’d be the whole rainbow. So thinking of energy, I painted red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple waves. For each color I just smeared on a few different shades of that color then messily filled in the space with a paint brush. While it dried, a long time, I searched through my paper scraps for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple papers. I cut them into organic circles then started to glue them together with a glue stick. I glued them on to my background and used washi tapes for the stems. I then used my Pitt artist big brush pen to doodle onto the flowers. I kept the designs simple this time. I wrote the quote with silver sharpie and outlined it in sharpie as well. So much color! I love it! What kind of energy is your spirit?
