Points of Two - Week 3

12:49 PM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

Greetings,

So we decided to use some additional prompts in our Points of Two Project to add a layer of depth to our art journaling and keep it interesting. In that vein we've begun using prompts from the amazing 52 pages . I admit that I really love these prompts. Because I tend to look at the world through the lens of Spirituality and combine that with my Relationship focus - having prompts that easily relate to "Woo" works for me.

This weeks prompt was "Acknowledge" - i love the depth of meaning in that one little word. To Acknowledge something is to accept the existence or truth of something, to recognize the importance or quality of a thing. To confirm gratitude for something and to greet with words or gestures. When I really began to contemplate and meander on it I realized that to Acknowledge my LIFE is a great asset. I live a life that is frankly amazing even to me - the depth and beauty and love that is resonant is profound. This spread is about that Acknowledgement - placed on the page as a written incantation - and so it is!
Mimi's Take on this prompt can be found here when she posts it!







Points of Two Week 2

Greetings,

Our week two take on the PoT project is using the theme of bubblewrap! Thankfully I didn't pop all of the bubble wrap that I had from all of our wedding gifts (I resisted the temptation!) and I still had some left over to play with in an art journal spread. LOL

Mimi's Take of this theme is here: A Flutter of Wings

My take on the theme was to use some of the paper towels I colored some months back over random graffiti words- however I found that unless you use the VERY thin (read: cheap) paper towels you will not get the transparency you need to see behind them. They still made a rather pretty background though. The only word that really showed up was "Laughter" which is very apropos as a descriptor to the joy i feel as i go through Life. i chose a magazine image of a girl laying down and added gesso and some water soluble crayons over it, then a used sand paper over that. I liked the roughness of the texture. Over allIi just let it flow without any real "plan" to this piece. It was fun and good to try out new techniques!
