3 for Journal 52 - Mixed Media Monday

Hello friends! How are you this Monday? I have 3 pages to share with you from my Art Journal today, all as part of the challenges at Journal52, where each week we get a different prompt to creative with. Here are my pages for the prompts from weeks 8, 9 and 10. 

Week 8 - Found Poetry
For this prompt it was suggested to use an old book page or magazine and highlight words in the text to use as the basis for your page, to create a poem or story. I clipped parts out of a book page and made up a bit of a story/scene. Then illustrated it.

The clippings say;
Overnight imagine escaping from the real world. A fairy story. 
A drumroll of thunder wakes me, go back to sleep. 
I paper pieced the bed, pillow and blanket, and went around them with markers. 
The girl image is a stamp from Paperbag Studios. 
I just used lots of random stamps from my stash in the 'dream bubble'.

Week 9 - Colour Swatch Inspiration
As you can guess, the inspiration was to come from colours. I used a Blue/Green/Yellow colour inspiration with a touch of purple and white. 

 I used stamps from Unity Stamp Co.
The quote to the left says:
Happiness is a direction, not a place. 
and the quote on the girls dress says:
'She decided to leap'

Week 10 - Create for a Cause
This prompt was about causes that you are passionate about, or even to ask if there is a cause to your art/craft. 

 I decided to embrace the reason why I make Art and Craft.  
'Cause it makes me happy!
 I used lots of bright colours for my background, and added some stencilling and doodling as well. I wanted this page to be bright and fun, and full of things that make me happy. Like rainbow colours, flowers and butterflies.

So there you have it, 3 pages from my Art Journal all for the latest 3 prompts over at Journal 52. I hope you liked seeing my pages this Mixed Media Monday. Thanks so much for stopping by!
