First Finished Page for Dina's Class...

Hellooooooo out there! Wednesday greetings to you! I'm so excited that I finally finished my first art journal entry for my "Masterful Art Journaling" class! OMG I know I keep saying it but this class is sooooo much fun and PACKED with exercises and learning! I can't say enough about it!

Okay, so the first artist we are studying is Van Gogh. This entry is inspired by Van Gogh's painting called "The Bedroom." The two things that inspired me the most about his painting were the exaggerated perspective and the emotion of the painting - so that is what I focused on for my page. For the right-hand page, I drew our bedroom onto tracing paper and then painted the back side of it. I tried to create a magical, peaceful, tranquil feeling, because that's how I feel about our bedroom...


here's a closeup of how the tracing paper looks. I attached it to the page with a layer of gel medium underneath.
The class is going to be available in Archived format, so you can still sign up if you are interested. Here's a link for more info.

Sneak Peeks for the August kits are up at Studio Calico. They look really fun! Now I can't wait for Reveal Nite!

Alrighty, off to bed for me. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments - I really appreciate it sooooo much!
