The Creative Exchange & more Art Journaling
This week I wanted to participate in
The Creative Exchange
This is my newly planted
"Julia Child" rose
A "buttery" yellow is fitting for her don't you think?
That reminds me, I was going to bake cookies today!
Other creativeness this weekend included working in my art journal.
Transfers using gel medium and beer labels.
Ok, while cooling off in the spa this weekend drinking one of these, I started to peel the label off.
Smashed a couple of the caps too.
Reversed the image in Photoshop then applied gel medium, put the image face down on the journal, then let it completely dry before applying water and rubbing the back to remove the paper revealing the image, fun!
Another page I was working on is about hydrangeas.
Neocolor wax pastels, watercolors & acrylic paint.
A fun & relaxing weekend indeed,
how was yours?
Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.
Have a wonderful evening!
P.S. The weather has finally cleared here, so I spent most of the weekend gardening. Need some photographic material, you know!! :-)
That buttery rose is lovely!
Did you see the movie Julie and Julia? I saw it a million times...loved it!
I like the photo with the beer label very cool!!
Do you still have tomorrow Off?
Hope you are having
Have a nice day.
Keep it up girl!
Your pages are turning out wonderful.. Looks like fun indeed..
That is so funny you used a beer labels.. I have a couple myself I have been saving to put on something.. Hummmm I wonder what.. Hee Hee...
Not much sign of our roses yet. In fact, I still have daffs and the columbine are still coming up. Very late.
Glad you had a lovely weekend. Ours was relaxed, too. :)
That Kona beer is fabulous; so enjoyed seeing your art work featuring it.
PS...I love your work so much you now have another follower in me :-)
It's Joan here from Gods Little People (thanks so much for following!). I look forward to follow your creative posts - I'm joining Christy Tomlinson's art journal course in July and simply can't wait. This will be my first encounter with the mixed media (and it'll be so exciting). Your creations are gorgeous and so inspirational!!
What is gel medium? That looks like too much fun.
And can I use it on laser color copies?
