Making Your Mark (Doodles & Mark Making)
Art Challenge: Custom Element
Journal Prompt: Ride the energy of your own unique spirit - Gabrielle Roth
For this challenge, I really wanted to embrace quirk. I love that word!
Quirk: a peculiarity of action, behavior, or personality; a shift.
Yes, a shift. Sign me up for that! I want to look at the world of possibilities and myself differently. To take my art less seriously in a freeing way. To redefine (my word for the year) what is my style. Knocking down self-imposed boundaries seems like a particularly interesting goal!
What do you think is going to hatch out of those seed pods??
A hand-carved stamp created my mystery pods. Once again, I am going to promote the beauty of carving your own stamps. If you aren't, please consider giving it a try. You will never look back. Here is the class to get you started: Doodle & Carve.
I created this page with acrylic paints, hand carved stamp and colored pencils.
Embrace your spirit of quirk!
