I have created a free follow along video on
Painting Pleasing Backgrounds if you want to try it. It is only one way of painting a background. There are many ways but I wanted to create a video about it.
Click here if you would like to try painting a background along with me.
The video is also a part of my new and first online expressive art journal workshop titled
Animal as Metaphor: Expressive Art Journaling Workshop.
I have facilitated/taught this workshop in person and now it is available online.
Link here to check it out the entire video/PDF kit for online class.
I am really looking forward to this month's
expressive art journaling workshop!
For those of you who have been coming to class for awhile,
you may have noticed certain themes, or symbols recur in
your journey. Reflecting on your story, your journey can
lead you to new insights and perspectives to help you reframe your story.
For me, leaves appear in my work frequently. Not only do I stop
and smell the roses but I am also intrigued by leaf shapes, sizes, and colors.
The size and color of some of the leaves in Florida are quite amazing. Beautiful foliage reminds me of my need to get back
to observing nature and recording some of the poetic attributes.
So, I created a handmade stamp of a leaf in just a few minutes cutting a leaf shape on a foamy stuck to a wooden block. And now I can use this leaf printing block to decorate and overlay designs on different pages!
Do you relate to a certain symbol? You might want to create your own stamp to use and reuse!
Also, what about those greeting cards you might have saved in a drawer?
They make beautiful additions to journal pages also.
Have an old news article saved? Poems?
Whether you want to play in your journal
or explore deeper issues, come join me at the Harris House
Thursday May 4th 1-3:30 pm.
