Hello art friends! I was so excited when I saw week 2 of Wanderlust 2021 would be taught by Laly Mille. She has a style that is so recognizable when surfing around pinterest. I feel so lucky to get a peek into her process and how she creates what I like to call a "dreamy" look.
Laly interpreted the "reflections" theme into a garden of thankfulness. It's good for all of us to think about what we are thankful for these days. Every thing that is going on in the world around us can be a little depressing if we don't take some time everyday to remind ourselves of the simple things that we sometimes take for granted.
We started this page by listing things we are thankful for by writing them vertically up the page. Then layered on ephemera and floral images from magazines. I also used a rose catalog I had purchased at a used bookstore. The rest of the project was all about layering acrylic paint.
I had so much fun trying a different style and I'm sure what I learned will be reflected in future projects. I'm partially done with another Tim Holtz paper doll journal video and will start working on my next video for Shawn Petite next weekend!
Hope you are inspired,
