Explore!

Hello Friends,

Since my mantra word for this year is EXPLORE, I decided to paint the cover of another journal. I may use this one for doodling or even writing since it is a small one with lined paper.

I also decided to paint it in acrylics after I laid masking tape around the whole cover and painted it with Gesso first. I like the way the lines from the tape created texture. Then I drew a small picture outline of the sea turtle onto the cover with a piece of carbon tracing paper. It shows up well and is easy to paint over with acrylics. Lastly, I added my own water and foliage. This was pretty fun!

Since this sea turtle is looking to his left, he is thinking, “Hey! What’s over there? I need to go explore!”  So my spirit animal and I are going to have a year to EXPLORE!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
