The Traveling Art Journal - Page One -

I've met some pretty awesome people on twitter. Especially many creative types, which is so amazing to see their work and be inspired daily! Well, I had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous Jessica through doing the Sketchbook Project and she has started a Traveling Art Journal that I have signed up for. This is my first "layout;" I have one more to complete!

I kind of did an ode to twitter... I wanted to keep this one fairly simple because I already know what I'm going to do for the next spread and it will be more of my traditional/messy/collaged style. I first did a light gesso, drew the twitter bird and then zentangled inside of it The only two contraints we had with the sketchbook was that the theme was "blue" and that we had to continue a horizon or line from the previous artist's page. The little swirles are a continuation of wind that Jessica had drawn on the previous page.

Well, that's it! I've never claimed to be an artist! I just pretend! See ya'll soon!
