A weekend with a friend is a great cure for stress. An art journal weekend is even better! I spent last weekend with my fabulously creative friend Annie, who can do amazing things with felt and beads, on my way to a San Diego for a work trip. Because it is also Photo Friday, I’m sharing with you two of my favorite photos from Annie’s in the afternoon, high altitude sun. No filters used here.
We played in our art journal with stencils, gelli printing, and acrylic paint. It was a fabulously relaxing and energizing weekend. Annie doesn’t art journal often, so she was looking for inspiration. I provided plenty of that! I screwed up and resurrected a page, and almost screwed up another one. I started and mostly finished a page without huge mistakes that I knew where I wanted to go with it. I started another that is in a very awkward stage as I do not know where I’m going and it’s in its ugly phase. So, here are my pages from last weekend!
My warm up page:
My resurrected page, salvaged to be an abstract sunflower:
The next page, which is too busy right now, but simmering:
My third page, very minimalist for me!:
My happiest page!
And my last, awkward stage page
