Embrace the unknown....


Over the weekend, I experimented with my highly neglected mixed media supplies and went a little crazy in my art journal. Instead of overthinking, I embraced the unknown and just played with as many art supplies as I could! *winks*

I first coloured the gessoed base with Derwent Inktense blocks and water. Then I went in with gesso and stencils. And then another layer of stencil with walnut ink. Next, I dripped some Daler Rowney inks and did some stamping with Ranger Archival Ink. I finished with text written with black and white acrylic paint pens.

Happy week ahead friends! :)

LOVE this Yvonne - so glad that you had some mixed media fun :) Your creation really touched me. The circle at the right seems like the "world/earth" to me. And your sentiment 'Embrace the Unknown' makes me think of all the people on earth that wake up every day to walk forward and embrace the day - the unknown - which is all the colors and splotches and lines and craziness of the mixed media. And then... the butterflies - our metamorphosis - the representation of how we march forward - growing/changing each day into the personalites that we are. There you have it - the Joi interpretation! I really love this!! Thanks bunches for your inspiration. Xj.

Very cool! It's amazing to see all the depth of layers on here, and all the detail on a surface that's still relatively flat!
