52 Sparks for 2013 Art Journal –  Week 6


Card stock, gesso, brushwork doodle, stick-on letters, squiggles paint, metallic mesh ribbon


This is week 6 of a weekly art journal based on guides provided by Dale Anne Potter.  All pages of this art journal are based on a tag created from card stock.  This weeks challenge was When you’re on top of the world…..

I started this week’s art journal tag by applying gesso and a wash of water colour.  I chose oranges to reflect ‘joyfulness’ and used metallic mesh ribbon to provide a sparkle.  The message is a combination of stick-on letters and squiggles paint.  I once again used some of the brushwork for a playday with friends many years ago.

This week’s art journal topic ‘When you’re on top of the world…’ was a timely one for me.  I completed the sentence with the phrase “…everything sparkles”. I am on top of the world right now.  Life is good.  It’s easy to describe how it feels. Not only am I reveling in the mellowness of the February sun but the slug work of setting up this website is progressing well and I love the site that is unfolding.  It’s been great working with my son on this. I’m also make good project one of the major projects for this winter – an exhibition piece to be revealed later.

An initial post about this project can be found  in my blog.
