Visual Art Journal Days 4 and 5 - Shabbat

Our fourth day was Friday, July 3 and the camp gets ready for Shabbat (Sabbath) which starts at sundown.  We don't have work or classes on Saturday because the Sabbath is a day of rest.  But after services on Saturday morning we had free time so I opened up the art room to those campers that wanted to relax and play.  Their journal prompt for Friday's journaling was to display through watercoloring and journaling how Shabbat makes them feel. Another prompt was what colors represent how they feel about Shabbat or how Shabbat makes them feel.  Below are my journal entries:

The first page was watercoloring with markers directly onto a Penny Black stamp, misted with water and then stamped.  The next page was watercoloring with a stencil - I applied distress inks right onto a stencil, misted it with water and then "stamped" with it onto the page.  The two pages with the Clearly Besotted tulip image was demonstrating watercoloring in the lines and then no line watercoloring.  Lastly I created a background using Color Bursts and Brushos and then stamped the Rubbernecker flowers with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used washi tapes to adhere the panel to the journal page.

Thanks for coming by!
