Day 8 - Rings
Day 9 - Chevron
For the rings prompt I painted the background and then stamped circles with white and purple paints. I doodled more rings with a black pen and filled the centers with white paint pen. I also made lots of tiny white ring marks and black cross marks throughout the background.
For chevron, I painted the background a neon pink and then stamped with a chevron roller stamp in white and darker pink. I also stamped a smaller chevron design with grey ink, added chevron washi tape and then doodled large and small chevrons on the page.
Day 10 - Criss Cross
Day 11 - Lines
The criss crosses are doodled with white and black pens on the fingerprinted background. I collaged a few circles cut from some messy paint scraps and made them into flowers.
For the lines prompt, I used the colored pencil border that I had cut from a magazine ages ago. I glued it over a painted and stenciled background. The lines were made with corresponding colors of colored pencils. Easy!
Day 12 - Puddled
Day 13 - Patterned
Day 12 was "puddled" so I dropped very wet watercolors on the page. Once dry, I drew in loose petals for flowers and veins for the leaves. I wrote messily with a fountain pen in a few places and then filled the remainder of the background with tiny black dots using a Sharpie.
For patterned I collaged some vintage ledger paper on the background and then painted over it. I drew the heart on and then filled the areas with different patterns in black and white paint pens.
Day 14 - Dashed
Day 15 - Loose
The left page shows the dashed prompt. I went crazy with hot pink, yellow and blue paints on the background and then stenciled over it with hot pink dots. I laid a leaf mask on top and then painted around it with a dark indigo acrylic paint. Once that was dry I added my dashes in white Signo pen and a hot pink gel pen.
For loose, I loosely finger painted two green and one turquoise paints with lots of water. Then I watered down white paint and painted a circle at the top of the page, letting it drip down. I doodled the flower and hash marks with a pencil and a turquoise pastel pencil. By holding the pencils near the end and lightly drawing, I was able to keep it very loose.
I hope you're enjoying my daily art exercises. They are very freeing and are forcing me to do something every day!
