On my latest city walk I visited Art Park, which has become the hub of Lancaster’s Black Lives Matter protests. I’ll let the art and signage speak for itself.
I was so annoyed with myself when I made a mistake while creating this art journal spread. But I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and made the mistake a feature.
I started out by choosing a magazine page with colors I liked, 2 flower punches, and a wavy grid on the spread.
Then I punched out flower shapes and glued them onto the intersections of the grid.
Next I drew concentric shapes inside the grid.
I then colored in every other space in each grid with a black marker. Can you see where I made my mistake?
Next, I added white dots and lines to the black areas.
Now it was time for some lemonade. I colored in the shapes in the area with the mistake and added some black dots. I turned my mistake into a feature!

On my latest hike I was struck by the variety of the shades of green, and the shapes of all the leaves.
