It's Friday, so there must be a paint party!
This was my second go at this page. It's not often that I rip a page out of my journal. Generally I'm a 'turn over the page and start again' type, but this time I really felt I couldn't save the page. So out it came.
In order to 'get out of my own head' I switched the brush to my other hand. With black paint so I had to commit to the brush strokes, I tried again. And this time I am so much happier with the results. I've used this trick many times. Somehow, using my non-dominant hand frees me up to draw wonky faces. And quite often the faces have more character because of their flaws.
This girl called for a wreath of leaves made from a hand-cut rubber stamp. And if there were leaves, there needed to be flowers - another stamp. I'm in a period of waiting at the moment, so the journalling reads: Learn from the plants - spend time in stillness.
Have a great weekend and go check out all the wonderful creations at Paint Party Friday.
