Today I'm sharing a project that I created during a recent class with Dina Wakley. The focus of the class was on understanding color, which is definitely an area where I struggle with when it comes to art journaling, which makes me giggle since I have no issues with this when it comes to card making. I think much of has to do with me being so darn excited about creating journal pages that I grab way too much stuff and struggle with knowing when to stop applying color, design, and layers! WooHoo!
During the class, Dina talked about the color wheel and using colors that complimented each others and those that were on opposite sides of the color wheel (if you don't have a color wheel, get one, it's really a helpful tool!) We created a bunch of color combinations in the beginning of the class before we started working on the journal pages. We created two pages and this one has become one of my favorites...I love the background color and contrast of the deep blue. Hey, I did it...two color families and a neutral! Yippee!
This was a really fun project...learning to play with color is great stuff! Grab a color wheel, art journal, stencils, and some paint and experiment...be fearless! (Product supply below)
