Day #1 - DAY
Before I post our pages for day #1 I want to mention a couple things. First, I have the little image with all the daily challenge prompts posted to the right side bar >>>.
Secondly, did you get over to Instagram yet? I don't want to miss any of your lovely pages! I don't return follow those random business accounts, but I think I got most of you added. If you want me to follow you and I haven't, just drop me a message and let me know you're from the art challenge group.
And to clarify, it doesn't matter two tiddly winks if you don't want to post your pages online. I personally think it's great fun, but if it's not your thing that's totally understandable. The important thing is that you're practicing being creative, trying new things and making your soul happy.
So then, here's where I went with the 'day' prompt. I threw down some pink and orange acrylic paints and smooshed 'em around with my hand and let that dry while I cut some letters out of black paper. After the paint was dry I glued the letters down and wrote out all kinds of words and short phrases that represent my everyday things. The white letters were written with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen and the black is my beloved Micron.
Jeremy worked right on his book cover for day #1. The cover was a little shiny so he covered parts of it in liquid gesso so that his colored pencil would stick and show up better. Everything is outlined with a Micron and colored with Prismacolors.
Tomorrow's prompt is 'geometric' and there are so many ways you could take this. Here are some images I saved to my Pinterest boards when I was brainstorming ideas.
Have fun playing... can't wait to see what you come up with!
