I've got a new journal page to share with you tonight.
I've been struggling a lot lately with remembering the purpose of my
art. I think that doubt is incredibly simple. I know everyone
doubts--I think its in our very nature as humans. The thing is, when
you doubt your artistic vision, then its easy to forget your very
purpose. And that's how I've felt the last couple of weeks--without a
purpose. But I feel like I'm coming out of that now.
The color scheme is a little bit different than what I usually use...but my friend Tori
gave me a little book of paper alongside some letter cut-outs and I
decided to use the paper as the inspiration for the color scheme. It's
the stripped paper on the left hand side on the bottom.
I used some of the big letters for the words "I am" outlined them with a pink paint pen and then used my Copic White for the dots.
The seahorse on the right-hand side is from Coffee Break. It's one of their new stencils. I also used their 4-leaf clover stencil, which I was certain I was going to hate, but then once I airbrushed it down I loved it! Just goes to show you shouldn't judge a stencil until you've actually used it. It makes a really nice texture for the background. Here is a close-up of the seahorse and a little of the 4-leaf:
That's it for me today. I've got a couple of tutorials in the works that I want to try and get finished and hopefully posted over the next week. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend everyone!
