Here is our photo inspiration challenge! I was inspired by the variety of colors and the circles throughout the photo.
I chose to tone down the colors and make them more pastel. I used a lot of Gelatos that I diluted with water to get a lighter color. The design of my art journal page was inspired by Dina Wakley and Julie Balzer.
The cool image is from Stampotique called "Minkygirl". I colored her with Faber Castell Pitt Pens using colors drawn from the photo.
In one of her classes, Julie Balzer taught a really neat handwriting/journaling technique. I gave it a shot on my page and I think it's warming up to me... you write whatever you want pretty sloppily and then you write your next line half on top of the line above it. What I ended up writing is pretty personal, but it's incredibly difficult to read so I like it that way ;)
Can't have a challenge without a PRIZE! There is a pretty awesome one up for grabs. Brave Girls' University is opening its doors September 1!!
