Welcome to the fourth week of the April Monthly Muse which is all about backgrounds. We're going to finish out the last week with creating impact using bold colors to emphasize a part of your page and/or to evoke a strong feeling, making an impact. The colors you choose will be dependent on the emotion you wish to portray in your page. Possibly, will you create a page of lightness, of positivity or will it be at the other end of the spectrum, will it delve into troublesome feelings, sadness? It might be comtemplative or whimsical. Let your mood, your feelings, guide you and create a page that speaks to you or for you, letting the inner thoughts and feeling burst out onto your page. I can't wait to see what you create! April Muse: Week 4 - Bold Colors and Patterns Add bold vibrant color to your page design, in any way you wish. Here are some samples to get you thinking. Here's my page. My page focuses on nature and I used bold green and yellow to emphasize the colors of nature. You may create any style of layout (ie. clean and simple, artsy, pocket style etc.) you wish, with or without photos. Create any size page you wish. This is for everyone, so have fun and see where the inspiration takes you. If you want all 4 Muses ( 1 for each week this month) on one page that's perfectly ok or you can make 4 separate pages!! It's totally up to you! Please post your layout to the Art Journaling Gallery HERE prior to April 30, 2019 and then post it in this thread by copying the code (at the right of your gallery image) from the box under "Share BB Code". We will draw a winner at the beginning of next month for a coupon!!
