I am participating in a travelling-journal-round this year that is initiated by Martha Ayala, who you all know I guess :-). She has created groups like 29 Faces, which is coming up soon again!
12 artists from around the world will create a journal and send it on to the next artist on a list.
I have created a page with links to the participating artist's blog. Here's a link to the The Travelling Journal page. You can find the link under the header of my blog as well!
Here is the first page I created in Anita Mistry's journal. I may be adding to it, but I'm happy with the outcome so far! Anita wanted us to use "the colours of India"/bright friendly colours. And so I went looking for inspiration on the net.
I started by collaging pink, yellow and orange papers onto the page and to give it a little contrast I added some greens.
I really loved the feel of this colourful collage! The bright and happy colours are quite different from, what I usually use, at least in that amount!
To evolve from there I had to find a face to paint, so I searched again, for people in India and found the image of a girl that I liked. I put some white acrylic over the collage and started to sketch the face with charcoal:
And added more paint and worked on details of the picture:
Here is the version I ended up with until now. It can rest for a while now and maybe I will get some ideas or things I would like to change.
I very much hope Anita will like the first page in her journal! I loved to work in it. It feels rather special, to do this kind of work for another person.
Because of my current situation I am going to reduce my blogging, but I'm going to post pictures from time to time without linking up with my favorite challenges and parties, as I am not able to get around to visit all the participants.
I am always happy to have visitors and I will visit you my dear blogger friends whenever time allows it. So feel welcome at all times!
