For a change, I decided to create a mixed media art tag using the prompts from June’s Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration. I haven’t created an art tag since October last year, so thought it would be fun to create one today using this months floral prompts.

Time for a new mid-month mini Mission: Inspiration art challenge and this month as the wonderful Doris Day has recently passed away I thought I’d do a small tribute and use a line from one of her early songs as our song lyric prompt for the month of May.
For me, the words Heaven and portal bring to mind images of swirling blues and cream colours and circles, so that’s what I went with for the basis of my art journal page that you can see above. To watch how I created the page from start to finish, simply click the YouTube link below.
I love the freedom that comes from interpreting song lyrics for art journal pages. Sometimes you can be literal or as abstract as you please in your representation of the lyrics of the song. In this case, it was all about using materials and techniques I haven’t used before or colours and layers that I don’t normally do! Perfect for this month’s challenge on our Mission: Inspiration Facebook Group! To watch how I created the page above – click the YouTube link below!

March’s Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration son lyric prompt (see below) is from the theme song to an old children’s TV show from the 1970s. The song brings back so many memories, I just had to use it in one of the monthly challenges.
