Give yourself a little visual sunshine today by checking out Joanne Sharpe's Whimsical Wednesdays.
Joanne is an artist who lives in Western New York.......a land known for its lack of sunshine and lake effect snow.
She counteracts the location's dreariness by donning color splashed leggings and house shoes while creating upbeat treats for the eyes, spouting the mantra of "Make your own happy".
I was inspired by her concept of "MINI MOMENTS" PAPER JOURNALS where she encourages her followers to, "Make a little bit of art every day, in a little bitty size".
Since I am a fun artist, not a fine artist, I found this to be a quite doable endeavor. Here is what I've done so far.
I cut a sheet of 9 x 12 watercolor paper in half, folding each half into fourths. Then I played on only 1 of the 4ths each day.
I used Tombow markers to "frame" each 4th section, a butterfly stamp and some collaging from a seasonal missalette.
Here's my current work in progress.
Thank you Joanne Sharpe for the inspiration and upbeat advice.
