Wow! This big journal is...BIG. I'm not used to having so much room to fill. It will definitely take practice. Here are the first few things I tried.
This is what I added to the first page I showed yesterday. I love this picture from a wonderbread ad! Of course I added a flower to her hair :)
One thing I for sure want to practice in this journal is painting words. They never seem to turn out exactly how I see them in my mind... Another thing I may try is painting faces- we'll see. Making friends with a paintbrush and understanding how it works is a good goal. Something that may surprise you is that my Dad was a high school art teacher and an artist. But he would never teach us (his kids) art- I don't really know why. So I am self- taught in what I do and I do enjoy all the inspiration I get from all you bloggers!
Have a great Thursday!
