Art Journal Prompt: My Day Grid
Divide your page into a grid and document your day… or several days in the spaces.
This prompt fits so well because it was in my list that I’d written in December and is also in the book we are giving away today~~~
How I created my page:
I chose to document a single day… today.. June 15th. A very busy day for me. Now I’m doing this from one of the “Try This” prompts in Cathy Johnson’s Artist’s Journal Workshop book. Cathy prefers watercolors and pens for most of her journal pages so I’m limiting myself to these supplies today. Scroll down for the book giveaway.
First step – Grid. Divide the page into a grid of .. “equal” squares. You can see that mind grid was not perfect so put that ruler away!!!
Second step – Sketch, Collage, paint.. whatever you want in the squares. I chose to do watercolor sketches to follow along with Cathy’s style. Not a big stretch since I’ve been doing more of that in the last month anyway.
The difference for me is that this time I took only my water color travel palette. I know.. NO neocolor for me today! LOL don’t faint or anything!
Third step – Title. I used a white crayon to do a resist over the letters of my title. (Also for the stars, the letters on my phone screen and on the hair color bottle)
Here’s the individual parts of my day – I did the throughout the day:
|I have not done this one yet… I will though.. if the stars are visible through the smoke|
Supplies used today:
- pitt artist pens
- waterbrush - you can never have too many of these!
- artists' watercolor field box set
This book comes out at the end of the month and has a lot of good information. Cathy’s publisher sent me a copy to share with someone!!! *throws glitter* I know you are so excited!! I’ll be drawing a winner on June 28th… my husband’s birthday… Best of luck!
