The Magical Journal Journeys has begun again for 2014. This time each artist has chosen an artist (living or passed) that they would like for each of us to work in that artist style in their journal. Not only are we creating pages in the style of their chosen artist, but we are each collaborating on the cover.
I absolutely love the idea of learning more about all these different artists and working a little outside my comfort zone.
The first journal I received is Lisa Wright's Journal. Lisa chose the artist,
The picture above is the book dust cover that Lisa made for her journal.
A great combination of Lisa and Matisee
Matisse was much more challenging than I initially thought he would be, but
I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with this artist and I learned so much from his personal style.
I chose to re-create Matisse's "Open Window" which was done in 1905. I could totally see myself sitting in that window in the afternoon enjoying that view of sailboats and water.
And because I love dessert and the color red, the second page I chose was "Dessert: Harmony in Red" 1908
Here is my afternoon with Matisse ~*
Open Window ~ 1905
Dessert: Harmony in Red ~ 1908
My journey with MATISSE was great! It will now be on the way to Stephanie,
who has been very patiently waiting... thanks Stephanie and Thank you Lisa
Wright for the great time I had with your chosen Artist!
This is the actual cover of Lisa's book, under the dust jacket. Tammy and I have both added to it and as it makes it's way to other artist, they will continue to add to it or change it completely. It will be exciting to see
each journal once they make the full round back to each of us.
Stay tuned for the next.....
