We’re baaaaaack! This week was Karen’s choice and here is what she had to say about her prompt pick:
This journal page is amazing. Kate notes that it is bold and vibrant .. I need to add brilliant and beautiful. The techniques that stand out to me are using wet gesso with sprays to get rich blends, blocking out with acrylics using watercolor-type wash techniques, and having related but separately done sides of pages that complement each other.
The coolest part for me, though, is creating a border by taping or masking off to keep it white. Usually we add black, ink, or patterned lines as page borders.. this is elegantly white. Dying to try these techniques like I am? Join us any time inspiration hits you.
Thank you Karen! Wow, this week is going to be awesome! (Told you we would be back with good stuff!) As Always, you have until Sunday at midnight (whatever your time zone is) to post pictures of your finished creations to Instagram using the #inspiby tag. If you aren’t into Instagram but still want to participate, then pop on over to the Happily We Go facebook page and you can put your pictures there! Remeber you always have the options to recreate the prompt or using it merely as inspiration when creating your own layout. But if you do recreate, please be sure to give Kate credit! Speaking of the fabulous Kate, be sure to check out her links below and show her some love!
I am so excited to be back. It was so nice to have a week off and just the right amount of time to sit while the creative juices start flowing again. I look forward to seeing how this week’s prompt inspires you! Don’t forget that this is just for fun, no pressures, just learning and playing and supporting each other. Our Inpsiby Family is the best so don’t be afraid to post your pictures! Be sure to tag Karen and me too, we love seeing your art! Have a wonderful week!
XO-Erin & Karen
