Not the usual a journal page a la Juliana Coles style. I have taken two or three classes from her. Ps her classes are fascinating and cathartic.
It’s not done but thought I would share it with you. I woke up thinking about this. When you do that you have to make it.
Going to write the number of cases world wide and the deaths on it sooner or later.
The start. I journaled across a piece of Canson watercolor board with a soft pencil and smeared it.
Circled random words with a grease pencil. And added yellow paint. Wish I had a nasty green yellow but nope.
Notes on possible words to use.
Adding words with a grease pencil. Dots were done with the end of a paint brush dipped in paint.
Notes from the news. Reminds me of watching Hurricane Dorian last August.
Using my Pentel brush pen to add lettering like on his chin. A white gel pen on the scarf and eyes.
Now. Trying to take away some cuteness. Paint on eyes was dabbed on with a finger then swirled around with the end of the paint brush. White paint lettering on scarf so it shows more.
Painted with that cheap acrylic paint. The kind in the small bottles. It has a tooth you can write on unlike the expensive stuff.
Next up cases and death toll world wide.
Try it. Very cathartic.
In the meantime. Knitting. Yarn at my feet on the stool.
Sock progressing slowly but looks like I will have plenty of time to finish this pair.
Margaret whose going to be sticking closer to home.
