Monday's Prompt and Some Pictures

The top picture is 5 x 7", the next 4 x 4", and the bottom, I think is 8 x 10" (don't have it right here). It's impossible from the pics to tell how big the art is, so I like to give you an idea. The top and bottom are done with photographs I took.

Well, Fall is here and so far it has been very nice. Leaves are turning color and temperatures have been pleasant. I had my very first warm cider this past weekend and it was delicious!!

Our prompt for this week is one word - the word Envision. Think about the word. What does it bring to mind? Do any colors pop into your mind's eye? What thoughts or feelings does it give you? Make a piece of art or a page with this word in mind.

Last week I talked abit about art journaling. Here are a couple quick tips for getting background color on pages. Take ink pads that are getting dried up and rub them over the page. You can use 1 color or use coordinating or contrasting colors. Another background technique is watercolor paints brushed over the page.

That's a great quote! Collages are wonderful, as usual. I need to get started on an art journal.
