Hi everyone, Tammy Klingner (aka Tambarambaa) back with you for another art journal share.
This one is inspired by Art and growth, and of course I just had to create a rainbow tree!
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies to create with, but the art and opinions are mine alone.
I began by applying TCW9001 White Gesso to my page and once dry I lay down that gorgeous tree stencil – TCW831 Faithful Tree.
I then squeezed out acrylic paints in rainbow colors, and beginning on the left hand side, I sponged the paint through the stencil with a dabbing or pouncing movement.
I began with red on the left, and then gradually merging through the colors of the rainbow, allowing them to blend a little as I went.
I also added brown for the tree trunk.
Looks like a bit of a mess as you are doing it, but once you lift the stencil, it’s so lovely! Gosh I’d love to shelter underneath that tree!
I then grabbed stencil TCW2309 Grass Slimline and lay it down underneath the tree, sponging a combination of greens to achieve a grassy look!
Next I grabbed stencil TCW585 Inspired Words – as this page is in a medium sized Junk Journal that I created, I didn’t have room for any of the words that were already there, but I knew ART would fit, so I created my own word, using the letters from other words.
I again moved through the colors of the rainbow, and sponged the paint on with a makeup sponge. Doesn’t it look cool!
Time to add lots of details with a pen.
I drew around the title, added some wording and also outlined all the leaves and the trunk of the tree.
I added a few extra leaves and created some falling down to the ground too and outlined the grass.
I also got thinking about my art and the way it helps me, so I added words into the leaves to represent this and also filled in a few gaps with little hearts.
I felt that this is all that was needed for this page.
Super bright, fun and easy, but most of all it soothed my soul, which needs a bit of TLC at the moment. Thank goodness for art and color!
I hope this has inspired you today.
When life is a bit tough, let it out on the page, lose yourself in what brings you joy and calms your mind.
Much arty love,
