I’m the next stop on the Art of Wild Abandonment Blog Hop! You’ve probably arrived here from Joanne’s Soul House.
This class has been such an awesome experience – and the utterly charming Junelle Jacobsen has not only been entertaining but so encouraging and insightful! I know it will sound odd, but although I am a digital scrapbook designer, I’ve never considered myself an artist – it still feels like a stretch to me. I spent 30+ years using the other side of my brain and until recently I didn’t even know there was another side! LOL!
I’m not as far along in the class as I’d like to be – life has a habit of getting in the way, doesn’t it? But I thought I’d share what I’ve done so far.
|My first attempt and sketching radishes
My DH thought I’d gone mad.
|Two-page art journal entry – craving spring!
|The (unfinished) canvas equivalent for my daughter.
|Got brave enough to make a mixed media canvas for a friends birthday.
|Used Junelle’s inspiration to make a 58th Anniversary present for my folks – figured these flowers would last longer than the real thing! There are dictionary definitions of words like anniversary, love, together, etc., hidden in the background.
|And finally the class gave me the courage to finish this canvas, which I’d started during Christy Tomlinson’s She Art 1 class. I made it for a dear friend I rarely get to see.
