For my second piece, I went back to Christy's Day One Color Inspiration piece... a page from Somerset Life magazine. I was honestly so
I was also drawn to the crazy quilting effect of the way the author of this page placed all her pieces and knew I wanted to incorporate that look/feel into my piece.
And you can see from the tiny little sketch at the bottom my rough plan for mimicking the crazy quilt layout of elements in the inspiration page.
This planner page was one of the things Christy introduced us to in class. And I LOVE it! I could do an entire Art Journal of nothing but the Inspiration and Planning pages ... because finding the inspiration and then pulling from what you have to match it really is addicting!
My finished piece - a 6x12" canvas. I still consider myself a novice when it comes to mixed media, but I was SO HAPPY with the way this came out. Not my colors at all. I swear it doesn't match any room in my home decor wise. And yet I love it enough that I really want to figure out a place to hang it! I surprised myself with this one.
Sorry I have droned on forever about this little work of art. I just really enjoyed the process and wanted to share!
