card#50: use a photo
i took this photo last week, of the sunflower field belonging to one of our (down the road) neighbors; it was a bit of a grey day, so i came home and added a little "photoshop magic"...plus the van gogh quote.
ok, pretty basic here, just A LOT of different numeral stickers, vaguely in order, and outlined; this was weirdly hypnotic to make.
i think liked this one a liiiiiiittle better before i covered up so much of the woman's figure; although on the other hand, i think the quote adds to it... (i had planned to use the reverse side of this magazine page, in which the woman with the umbrella is visible, but when i turned it over to glue up, the surreal silhoutte was just too cool!!!) ...also, i think in a journaling project, if i don't "wreck" a couple of ideas per week by "going too far" i'm probably are not taking enough risks!
i started drawing silly "happy faces" in college and never stopped. to this day i still always color them in with a yellow highlighter. my favorite is "le visage heureux"; that's him, with the beret!!! :)
i hope one of the happier "happy faces" out in the world this wednesday afternoon is YOURS! ♥♥♥
*why is the thought of starting a brand new... ANYTHING... always soooooooooo much more tempting than continuing an old one??! or is that just me? please share your thoughts on this matter, especially if doing so will make me feel less guilty about my fickle art journaling nature!!! :) :) :)
