I actually made two projects for the Summer of Color this week. I started with a journal page, that at first went horribly wrong. While I was thinking about how to proceed with the journal page I made two ATC’s. I think they turned out really cute.
I finally knew how I wanted to finish my journal page and even made a video.
Since I filmed the whole process, I don’t have progress pics, but I do have loads of detail shots. So be warned, this is a picture heavy post.
I’m planning to sent these ATC’s out, so I also made little card holders to put them in.
I attached a elastic from my stash to the card holders. It was white at first, so I used vintage photo to give it this lovely color.
The ATC slips nicely under the elastic band.
Here’s the complete set.
So now for the journal page and a complete picture overload.
I do feel I’m getting the hang of this filming, though it still isn’t perfect. Hope you like it.
I really didn’t know where this page was going to take me.
Somehow it made me want to draw a sleeping lady.
So I did and she made me feel peaceful and calm.
The quote is by Anne Morrow Lindbergh and it reads: “For sleep, one needs endless depths of darkness to sink into. Daylight is too shallow, it will not cover one.”
I feel it fitted perfectly and poetically with my little journal page.
I love this picture from La Dolce Vita, just the thing I would like to find in my dreams.
I really like how this page turned out. It has been a while since I painted a face. I think well over a month now, I was somehow dreading it. Oddly enough painting faces touches me emotionally and I don’t always want that. This one doesn’t leave me emotionally drained, so I’m happy.
Thank you all so much for watching and I wish you sweet dreams.
