Today I am sharing some art journal spreads I have made for Get Messy Art Journal Season of Colour. I am really loving working in my Kikki-K journal – it is the perfect size, and I love the cardstock pages.
This first spread incorporated a prompt from last week – to include a rainbow. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I love watercolours and the way they create such moody and dramatic effects. The rainbow exploding from the magazine cutting worked out exactly how I imagined it in my head – that is a rare thing when I make art.
This next spread was inspired by a colour walk – it’s winter here so grey is an everyday occurrence with spurts of green foliage. I shared this work in progress on Instagram earlier this week – the line drawings and gouache background is inspired by @vineandthistle. I’ve been crushing over her work for quite some time.
My last spread, called ‘Marilyn’ for obvious reasons was another experimentation with watercolour. I didn’t intentionally make a galaxy of her dress, but it kind of looks like one anyway.
That’s it from me this week. I’m really looking forward to another week of prompts and tutorials from the Get Messy Creative Team. I always learn so much from those wonderful ladies.
