Hi to all of you,
I'm back with a massive update again. The first thing I have to tell you is that I didn't make it this year to finish the competition. I was really bummed that I couldn't complete it.
I was just too busy with work this year. In advance I thought I would be able to make it, just like last year. But I bit off more than I could chew this time. So, when I was about half way, I had to give up.
Nontheless I did create quite a few things which I want to share with you. Here they are.
SISTERS BY BLOOD, FRIENDS BY CHOICE
The first thing I want to share with you is a small canvas. I recently bought some new colours of quality acrylic paint and wanted to try them. I actually do love them in this combination. This canvas was inspired by Donna Downey.
WHAT SCREWS UP MOST IN LIFE...
Then I still had quite some paint on my palette and couldn't just throw it out. So I decided to use it in my art journal. The basics are the same, but this time the quote was the most important thing on this layout.
IT'S A BIG BIG WORLD
This assignment was the biggest challenge for me. I had to work with a sketch. Although I have used sketches in the past, I can't work with them anymore. I actually think they limit your creativity if you really have to stick to them.
This sketch was not really my style which made it even more difficult to finish this layout. But eventually I did finish it. It is not my best work ever, but I can live with it.
Then there was this other huge challenge. Use the ugliest paper you have and make your prettiest layout ever. Well, that didn't really work out. But I love that I only used my own handmade flowers on this layout.
For this assigment we weren't allowed to use words on the layout, but had to use at least 5 letters. Although this is really difficult for me, because I LOVE words, I also like the challenge.
I have to be honest and confess that I'll probably add some words (a title and some words on the banner).
The last layout is one I really like. All we had to do is use banners. I decided to use a lot. :) I also really like the mask by TCW I used in combination with some gesso.
Well, that was all for now. Of course I'll be back soon for some more work. Enjoy the nice weather! :D
