This weeks pages came after a bout of absolute creative drought. I just didn't know what to do or how to approach the prompts. I was completely uninspired and was actively avoiding looking at my book!
I decided to just try throwing colour at my problem and I actually emerged from this little uninspired coma with pages I am super happy and proud of! Colour fixes everything!
Here is my first page that broke me out of the rut..
- felt tips & watercolour
I love blackout poems and the one I created here is pretty abstract but I like the words that come from it. Spirits, snow and solitary.
- felt tip, watercolour & collage
I think on reflection these words would of fitted better with the rainbow colours (!)
This blackout poem is a dedication to all my creative crafty art friends :)
I was planning to draw over the top of the black collage but I quite like the depth and darkness of it. It's very reflective of the funk I was in before creating these pages. When your mind is just.... blank
- watercolour & collage
This is a time travllers wife quote. I splashed water over the letters once they were semi-dried to try and bring some emotion to the page. It's a desperate plea and it's a quote I can relate to over and over.
- watercolour & photoshop
I needed to dedicate a page to my favourite words ever, as it is the season of words.. I love flump because of the way it fills your mouth when you say it and it makes me all nostalgic for marshmallow treats.
