Be The Flower …Not The Gardener

is something a dear friend said many many years ago to me and I have tried to follow this advice in certain fields of my live and also told other’s to follow it ;) It is good to be the flower sometimes ;)

I created the background by using spray paints and then dry brushing them after they had already dried a tiny bit. I love the effect. The flowers itself come from some drawings on watercolor paper which I had done a couple months ago and then colored in with the Liquitex Paint Markers. I do love how you can blend them and create also a nice texture with them. I cut the flowers out and collaged them onto the background.

You see you can use other art work or projects and include them in your art journal.

I used this before in a canvas- but I do love it so much- I wanted to use it again.

The texture comes from the masking tape underneath – I just scraped the paint over it to reveal the texture and then used a brush to add some orange marks here and there into the still wet paint.

The heart is a cut out from a deli paper mono print and I created the big black splots by using my beloved Liquitex splatter tool with black acrylic ink.

Here is the supply list for you:

Listen or…Anything Can Be

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

I used this Shel Silverstein Poem- which I really love:

Listen to the mustn’ts child,

listen to the don’ts

listen to the shouldn’ts ,

the impossibles, the won’ts.

Listen to the never haves

then listen close to me

Anything can happen child,

ANYTHING can be

I created with backgrounds by just using Liquitex spray paints over some gesso textured pages and also through the cut out page. Easy and fun.

Do you have a favorite poem?

hugs
