It is a good theme Yvonne - Meggysway have found, and here is what I see when I stand on my balcony.
I had to try a method of covering with white acrylic color. First I started gluing pieces of paper on my page and then I painted with different colors, afterwards I drew some organic forms. The entire page was covered with transparent gesso for pastel color.
I also tried colored charcoal which worked really well.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I wish you a good crafty day.
To start my canvas I glued on an extra coarse piece of canvas which then was painted with black and blue paint. After drying I put a good layer of crackle medium on. At last I used titan buff for the cracks and cobalt teal blue to run down the middle.
I found the various elements as shown on my photo. I have stamped on tissue paper and sticked it on my canvas

I stamped with gray ink, drawed the bird band where I should have my hearts to hang. After I had stamped on my masking tape, I cut out the motives and placed them. I distressed my tag and then used my stencil. The motives were colorized and the hearts got 3D pads and were put on.

In course week #3 the theme is "Wilna's Art - three ways". The tutorial is by Wilna Furstenberg. Her flowers are very delicate and reminds me of porcelain we have here in Denmark. I have created several examples of these flowers and it was difficult, I was too cautious and made very small flowers which was almost impossible to color, so I went up in size, I ended up with this journal page. As you know, practice makes perfect.
I was very exicited to participate in the first challenge on Wanderlust, where we have to capture the essence of January. I have chosen the three colours as shown below. I love that the dark hours of January gets lighten up by the snow.
This weeks theme in the Wanderlust course is "Making Magic" and I was very inspired by Mary Wancerin and her canvas here in week #2 of the course. I used my art journal, and this is my result. I used the techniques shown by Mary Wancerin and ended up with lots of layers of colour and different layers of scraps.
I tried out with lots of bright colours to really challenge my self and my comfort zone which usually is more darker colours.
