DLP started on the 1st January and every Saturday thereafter a new challenge would be posted. Each month would have a theme, for January it was The Blank Page and How to Face It. Each weekly DLP would have an Art Challenge and a Journal Prompt. For the first challenge this was Book Paper and the prompt was Be your own Goal Keeper.
Art Challenge: Gesso
Journal Prompt : "The beginning is always today" - Mary Shelley
For this I used three types of gessos. White gesso for my background, black gesso for stencilling and clear gesso mixed with Luminarte Primary Elements. Using the clear gesso and primary elements as paint I coloured a piece of scrap paper, stamped on it several dandelion clocks and cut them out. The journal prompt became my title.
Art Challenge: The Colour Wheel
Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with colour and shapes I couldn't say
any other way..." - Georgia O'Keeffe
Art Challenge: Writing
Journal Prompt: Words with Friends
I wrote across the double page spread, sprayed with Dylusions ink, brayered on some gesso (which takes up the colour of the Dylusions underneath) and stamped on some blank book pages with Kaisercraft stamps.
More to come.
