Monday, Monday. Hi everyone, this is week 3 for AJC (Art Journal Caravan) and I took on the challenge to view myself as a canvas. I thought about using a photograph but then decided to do a character sketch of myself. I did the sketch, printed it out and colored with Copics, I then scanned it in and took it to photoshop and added it to the easel and canvas, all elements are from Emeto Designs - "Discovering Love". Background paper is Viva Studio "Penmanship".
My journaling: "I am a canvas. I am 66 layers of color, one for each year. I am layers of glazes, some sparkle, some shine, all of which have taken wrinkles with age. The lines curve and bend with the joys and sorrows. The base colors still radiate the passion inside, they have strong undertones of faith and persistence. The canvas stands ready for sofe bristles of the brush to still add and refine, for that is the life of a canvas. It is not a masterpiece until it has been signed by its' creator."
