Here’s a different kind of photo for you! This is a photo of a piece of fabric that I was adding my spin to for an ongoing surface exploration project. This piece of fabric will go on to become discharged, painted, dyed, or possibly stained—but I got to make the first mark. What did I write? Well, that’s for me to know and you to struggle to find out. No, really, I just wrote and wrote and wrote about my daily routine. I thought I’d make it through the entire day, but I am a wordy gal, and only made it through lipstick!
How can you use this photo in a piece of art or use your own version? Do you have favorite markers that you never get to play with enough? Try pulling a couple markers out and just write with a stream of consciousness. Love watercolor pencils? Even better. Use multiple pencils to scribble away and then use a large watercolor brush to activate the paint in big swaths of colorful washes. Any of these ideas can be used for an inventive background for a collage or journal page, or use it simply to get your creative muscles moving this weekend.
When you’ve finished your Photo Friday inspired piece, upload it to our Photo Friday Gallery. You never know who will be trolling it looking for great art! (Wink, wink.)
