inspiration ave: sun

Here Comes the Sun - a great prompt from IA this week of gray, gray, gray in Seattle.  I had some backgrounds started in my journal that I thought I'd put to use for this prompt.  I also used the opportunity to practice my Lettering Love (for the class by Joanne).




This page was a total experiment.  Carla Sonheim suggests making random paint dribbles and marks and then letting your imagination turn those shapes into something that you see - kind of like rorschach tests.  While she encourages imaginary animals, I saw flowers and then had this great quote just waiting for the right art.

  13. Love the exuberant response to the IA challenge. For some reason I had a hard time finding this page - thus I'm late commenting.
