Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.
The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.
Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams. I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.
Add water onto the watercolor paper. Then add
watercolor to the wet surface of your paper in an organic shape. Remember that
less is more at this stage. I use 3-5 colors either in warm tones or cool
tones. We can talk a bit about color theory in class. Let the colors bleed into
each other. It might help to lift up the paper to let the color drip. Air dry
or use dryer to speed up the process.
Step 2:Mark Making
Start to add marks onto the watercolor page.
Any marks are good in repetition, circles, lines, dots, and squiggles. I choose
circles, as it seemed to give this piece a feel of looking at cell structures
under a microscope.
Step 3:Continue To Make Marks
Keep adding marks until you fill about 25%-30%
of the area. Small and large keeps things interesting. Doodle to your hearts
content. This is the fun part.
Step 4:Add A Journal Spot
an area with your pencil and ruler for where you want your journaling to go. I
will use a quote or talk about what I hear, smell, see or just feelings I have
at the moment. Also leave some room for the date. Notice that I added the words
to the side of the page. I like not having things front and center. Keeps it
Write the quote in pencil to sketch out how it
will all fix so you can adjust it to fit to your page. My quote is, “Forget all
the reasons why it won’t work and believe the one reason why it will!”
When you are satisfied with where it is on the
page write over the pencil in the black pen. Be sure to add a date to your
My hope is that you are having an amazing start to your New Year.
