It was a real pleasure to receive my mums travelling art journal- Monotones, and have it in my hands, to touch and look at and then to play in the remaining pages.
I wanted to try and work in the colours not present yet and it was pretty hard because this gorgeous journal already had a rainbow
Monotones is a bit of a challenge for me who is very partial to the entire range of colours and using them quite liberally. I found there was no gold and no red so I went with them.
The first 2 pages were play and fun and I am also using them as journal prompts in our Australian Art Swap Group and the third one was much more personal.
I recount memories from a long ago family holiday and include some natural elements from that trip.
I have another page in process and am leaving a double page for my beloved mama to play in and then her whole journal is filled!
I did this little on on the back page and I made a video if you want a look through the whole thing. It features many artists work from the Australian Art Journal Swap.
