Studio Sunday - Art Journal

I've finally got a start to my new art journal! I regularly keep a sketchbook, but I've wanted to get into regular art journaling for awhile now. So I decided to join The Art Journaler group run by my online friend, Teresa Robinson. http://www.theartjournaler.com This month's theme is "Catching Dreams."

One of my goals for the month is to think about my artistic dreams and aspirations and where I want to take them. In the meantime, I've been reading the Letters of Vincent Van Gogh, one of my favorite artists (and a fellow Aries!). I decided to use one of my favorite quotes of his for my first journal spread, since I still had some printed out and lying around from the Inspiration Deck Swap.

"I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream." - Vincent Van Gogh

I started off with the glue designs I had "drawn" last week while I was waiting for my canvas to dry, and added some watercolor crayon, with some pan watercolor to intensify the colors. I then added a spattering of metallic acrylics.

Then I added my text, some punched out stars and wrote the word 'dream' under the star.

I had fun with this... there will definitely be more to come in the future!
