Salutations Bloggers , Lisa here with a Mixed Media update .
Today I am sharing with you the last circle journal ,I have completed in the Scrapping Clearly Circle Journal Swap. And that is the last one ,I have to complete in this swap.
I really enjoyed the swap process and putting in some heartfelt creative goodness into the pages of each and everyone of the journals that past over my art desk .
The theme of this Journal was Inspiring Artists.
I picked the incredibly talented Australian Artist
Del Kathryn Barton
Winner of the Archibald Prize in 2008 and 2013.
With so many wonderful layers and details to Dels' incredible work that I am just enchanted by
the magic of each piece of her incredible work.
I had planned to just print a few pics and talk about why her work inspires me, but the instructions in the journal asked each participant to attempt to paint in the style of the artist ,
so that is what I did, well sort of .
I started by rubbing off some DWM paint through a stencil to add some subtle layers to the background , then roughly drew a form and using Liquitex Gesso painted that form onto the page.
Now its all about layering into the piece. More paint, pen, and pencil.
I have a new pen passion,
The Jane Davenport Inkredible Pen.. oh my lordie -insta love.
that rad paint brush stamp, and some cutting of extra photos to add a little collage style Del into my own work, and I was happy with the result.
I have added the 2 artworks that inspired and where used within my Del attempt.
I just love the freedom of Collage style creative fun.
I finished the piece with a few paper clipping from an article about Del and a
Thickers Black font title .
I am curious what Artist/s inspires you ?
Definitely leave a comment to share your inspiring artist/s,there are just so many to choose from.
