Best Moments With You @ DS4J

{My Dt work for Digistamps4Joy}

Happy Tuesday my friends! I am back again with another post to invite you all and play along with us at Digistamps4Joy monthly challenge here. No theme...just Anything Goes. There's a twist though if you want to add some love in your project; the twist is "All About Love". This challenge is hosted by Debbie Ebat. I kindly ask for your prayers for Debbie's recovery as she is currently in hospital. We at DS4J pray and hope she will be discharged soon and feels better again.

For this challenge that will end on the last day of January, I have added a big Patch Heart digi image in the center of this paper bag mini album. I am making another mixed media mini album of ten pages at most. This is the start and hope to finish it before next month. Big aim!
Just like last year, I am still drawn to shades of blues. Black is what I can't miss in any artwork of mine. I still wonder when I will step out of my comfort zone {chuckle}. I know that is to happen some time soon this year, we shall see {smile}.
 This project took me some two hours from just empty brown paper bag to finishing touch of colors. I was pretty excited to get it started I refuse to leave the table. That's always the case when I get so engross. Don't you feel the same too? Engross I was that I forgot to play with modeling paste like usual in the starting process. Only after the paints dried, I realized something missing, duh! So out came the paste and stencils for dimensional.
For me, without gesso, texture, modeling paste, stencils, stamping, paints, bits and bobs and junks...I feel lost! What about you?
 I started by adhering paper strips from paper scraps. You often accumulate a mountain of them from previous projects I'm sure. Then I gesso-ed all of them and let dry in thin air. While waiting, I colored the patch heart with watercolor pencils.
 I simply let watercolors take over the page. I'm this close to finish off another set of watercolors before new ones come in. Can't wait for them to arrive!
So there! I hope you like my artwork this time. There are times I try to stay away from mixed media and paints when in sickness especially but it is so impossible. Art has always been my forte and it brings me so much joy and happiness no matter how painful the neck has been the past few days, by doing art, it keeps me in sanity.
