Journal 52 Week 11 DREAM with Effy Wild

Journal 52 
Week 11 
with Effy Wild

Artists have many dreams.  Some say they are dreamers.  I have had many dreams and have fulfilled many of them.  I have been published numerous times, participated in a few shows, sold my art at art fairs, etc.  The past year or so I haven't really been feeling it.  I really didn't have a focus.   However, I have recently been asked for pieces by several businesses in my area.  So now, I have a new dream.

Moonshine March 2018 New Moon in Pisces

Moonshine March 2018 
New Moon in Pisces

Pisces is emotionally intelligent, empathetic, and attuned.  Stuff might come up to be tended- not bypassed, ignored, or projected.  Man!  This explains a lot of what is going on with me right now.  I plan to journal it out on the facing page.

Moonshine 2018 Ash Moon in Virgo with Effy Wild

Moonshine 2018
 Ash Moon in Virgo 
with Effy Wild

Running behind in my art groups and classes  (as usual)  I am catching up somewhat while working on three independent art projects for different organizations.  
I thought that I would keep this spread simple by working with collage but ended up spending a few hours using many mixed media tools.  I am pretty happy with the end result.

Book of Days Week 11 
with Effy Wild 
Art Journal Pages

Two weeks ago, someone stole my art journal that I was using for this year.  It was hand bound and all of my work since January was in it.  Sad was I.  However, I am moving on and am using my favorite pre-made art journal by Dylusions.  I like the bigger one but it is hard to scan and post... I am not really tech savvy LOL.  Here is my spread for BOD week 11-

Journal 52 Week 9 TRANSFORM with Effy Wild

Journal 52 Week 9 TRANSFORM with Effy Wild

     I began with a wash of watered down fluid acrylics.  I then used Pan Pastels to finish the sky and the grass and flowers.  I used a stamp or the butterfly.  After using fixative, I used Posca acrylic paint pens to write and put on the finishing details.  I sealed the journal pages with matte medium.
