I’m over winter. Completely and totally over it. I am over the cold temperatures, the bare trees and the gray skies. It seems like winter may just never end around here, so I decided to focus on color in my art journal this week.
My inspiration for the art journal page this week started with the sun and for my desire to see it! I sketched out a sun and some sun rays in my book, but then decided that I would rather it not be a typical sun. One look at my crafty pegboard will tell you that I appreciate all things rainbow, so I grabbed a rainbow variety of acrylic paint from the Handmade Modern line at Target. I used the array of colors and some light blending to create rainbow beams shooting out from the sun.
In order to look for the perfect quote for my page, I did what I often do and turned to Google. I simply googled “Quotes about Color” and then clicked on the “Images” filter at the top of the page. I was treated to such a wide variety of quotes that I wanted to include as many as possible! I chose my very favorite quote to be featured in white writing in the center of the black sun. Then, using some messy handwriting, I added the rest of the quotes as beams of inspiration coming out from the colorful array of light.
Keep it creative,
