Wonderful Wednesday - Weekend Art Day

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  I'm here to share my weekend Art Day with @britt_quilts.

It wasn't my best ever "us-ie taking" day, but here we are, ready to make an attempt at catching up on the Junk Journal January prompts from Meg Journals:

I started by adding some details to the MAP prompt:

From there I added some embellishments to my HAND LETTERING page:

The cool folded paper bit was from at tutorial by Helen @ Journal With Purpose

My TEXTURE page was a bit of a challenge.  It might look like a bit of a hot mess, but I wanted to focus on textured images rather than creating background texture:

The BEST part of the day was when (finally) I added the cover art to my Board Book Journal begun in a FREE class with quilter/artist Drew Steinbrecher:

With that done, I moved on to interpreting the EXPERIMENTAL prompt...

I chose a stenciled page from Britt's scrap folder and built around it with other scraps and some custom papers she created for me:

It went through several iterations, including eliminating "floating" elements...

Cutting out a large portion of the straight lines...

Along with playing hide and seek with our prompted word...

Before arriving at the spread you see below:

It might not feel very much like "me" in color choices or page layout, but it was an enjoyable experiment.  Thanks for hosting the first Art Day of the new year, B!  I was pleased to have a dedicated time to catch up on the Junk Journal January prompts.

Until next time...
