Art Challenge: Recording Memories
Journal Prompt: Taking the Road Less Traveled
Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? No matter what road you are on, with kids, or by yourself. Someone is always asking this question! I didn’t have a specific memory I wanted to record so I just had some fun with maps and creating my own.
Next I shaped the existing bodies of water with blue and white acrylic paint. Then I formed some brown mountains and finished the rest with three different colors of green acrylic. It was a little therapeutic to blotch in the greens. Took a while, but it looks good!
After my paint had dried, I painted some squiggly gesso lines and painted them black to make roads complete with yellow dashes down the center.
I think went to my stash of vintage clip art and pulled out some cars and trucks and glued them down with Mod Podge.
I colored the vehicles with Copics.
