The Lilac Color Chaos Journal
Today I’m sharing an update on the group art journal project I am a part of – The Color Chaos Journals!
6 of my art journal friends and I decided to do sort of an art journal round robin, we each start a journal and send it to each other, letting the others create pages in their journals.
I think purple is super pretty but I don’t use it in my work very often because I have trouble working with it. Weird, I know, but it’s one of the colors that challenges me.
I had to suck it up and use it for this journal though, since it is Lilac themed! 🙂
The background for this page is a gelli print I did. They make the best backgrounds! After I glued the print and some tissue paper down, I stamped some “X’s”, and I painted/drew the girl on top.
For this next page I did an ombre circle using gelatos on top of gesso. The blend so well.
I’m not sure who added the unicorn image, but I had fun adding the sunburst coming out of the horn.
I’ve made it my goal to do a space page in all of the Color Chaos journals. This time I painted a purple galaxy.
I copied this lovely lilac haired lady out my sketchbook. I colored her a few days ago with pink hair, so I scanned in a copy & photoshopped it to be more lilac toned.
A Purple tinted picture of Venus. Because, why not?
This Instax picture ended up being a fail, but it made for a lovely art journal page!
I love doodling, if you didn’t already know it. For this page I grabbed a purple Sharpie and just went a bit crazy. The page on the left is a combination of washi tape and acrylic paints. Are you jealous of my hedgehog washi tape?
So there we have it! This was such a fun journal, but I can definitely say I’m ready to put down the purple paint for a little while.
What colors do you find challenging?
