After a two week winter break from school, we are having another 2 days off from school! The wind chills are down to -55 degrees F and the actual temperatures are around -20 F. This is the coldest it's been in about 10 years. They've already called off school for tomorrow too.
Daria and I played a lot of My Little Ponies, made some scones, watched some tv and I practiced some image transfers and painting while she played with my art stuff. I thought today would be a good day to catch up on some blogging.
A few weeks ago I made this "Count the Stars" picture in my art journal. I liked the strips of colors in this pin and decided to make something inspired by the background.
1. I started by sketching out the letters with a pencil.
2. Then I outlined them using my Pilot Varsity Fountain Pen (my favorite pen ever.)
3. Next, I filled in the areas around the words with strips of blue and turquoise scraps. Some pieces of patterned tape were added too. I cut out the hexagon shapes and added a little colored pencil on the edges to make them stand out.
4. The letters are colored in with colored pencils and white paint markers. I looked at areas within the background that I thought could use little patches of watercolor paint and added in some extra color.
Keep in touch with me!
