now Im adding some more paint..a different color and  a different brand..this is Golden Liquid acrylic..it has a much higher pigment content, and a little goes a very long way..it is also not as much of a “matt” finish so it will add to the luster of the sky..

..I squirted a bit of water onto the page..

..I will continue on to the other side making it a bit lighter  on the left as that is the sunrise side…I also journaled about what lies beneath each of us and our art..at this point it is  still needing more layers of blues….but sometimes I work on other parts and go back to the layers..

after more layers of blue I will begin adding some details on the buildings..and the sky..

“Technique of the Week” featuring the wonderful and super creative Tammy Garcia of “Daisy Yellow” blog

140809_gridz_0009
So I  am so thrilled that Tammy  is the  first artist opening for “Technique of the Week”..Why..? you may ask..Well..it could be because of her amazing talent for instilling the creative spirit..or inspiring  you when you cant find your muse….or it could be her  knack for finding just the right prompt ,at just the right time….. Oooor it could be her genius in developing ICAD, so  everyone can join in on the creative fun…
……..but its a bit more than that.. Tammy  doesnt  try to sell you a  glamorous  view of how to become an artist.. she doesnt  promise deep intuitive  secrets of learning how to create …she never implies that she has the answer…but what she does do,  is encourage you to practice, experiment, explore and  define who you want to be as an artist…she  helps you to find your own lines ..and color outside of them…. Thank You Tammy….the world is a more joyful, creative and colorful place  because of you..and Daisy Yellow Blog!

Thank you for inviting me to share an art journaling technique today. My favorite thing about art journaling? Aside from messing with paint and color and texture and… it doesn’t even need to be in an actual journal! I created this page on the heavy cardboard back of a wire-bound pad of watercolor paper. I hope that you try this easy background technique; it’s a layer of Golden heavy body acrylics that reminds me of the ocean. I went on a treasure hunt through a stack of magazines looking for little bouquets and vases of flowers and made a grid of flowers. Ideas for a gridded page include… blue items, things with patterns, paint chips, hats and blocks of text. Explore your magazines and assorted paper ephemera for fun things to use in your collage. The video tutorial runs about 7 minutes and there’s music, but you can turn it down and just watch if you prefer!
