Q & A with Adriana

What is your favorite November memory?

It is a very special month, the beautiful days begin to enjoy the first heat, walks and walks with my husband Guillermo and my children Juanpi and Mariano, more time to share with friends and meetings. It is the anniversary month of being married to my love, and the time of closing of cycles.

What is your favorite supply or product?

I really like acrylics, watercolors and I love modeling paste. But the truth is that the mix media is fascinating because it allows you to continue discovering materials constantly, so I could expand my list and add stencils and rice paper to my favorites.

Are you inspired by a particular artist or artists, if so who?

I use Instagram a lot and through this network I follow many artists of this medium, who always serve as inspiration, for example: Sharon Fritchman, Heather McMahon, Emma Zappone, MarielaPapeletas, smnmarina, dequevaelrollo, craftowanie.

What is your favourite colour palette to use?

My favorite palette is between blues and light blues, but generally it has a lot to do with the mood or what I want against at that moment.

In my art journal, I have always wanted to try...? 

In my art journal I always try to be creative and let myself go. I like to experiment and discover the beauty of aesthetics through different media. It is best to observe the results and try to be self-critical. 

And finally, why do you enter art challenges?

I love challenges, they are a fantastic trigger to tell something, transmit messages, feelings and express yourself.  I deeply appreciate this fantastic opportunity to show my work through the More Than Words Challenge!

Adriana's Interpretation of our November Main Challenge

Adriana says:  For this work I was inspired by the word face, I liked the phrase "choose your face", in my case I am not one to hide what happens to me and my face says it all.

I chose a vibrant palette of pink and violet colors using gelli for the background seeking to highlight the face. Some stencils and strokes with acrylic. I hope you enjoy this proposal.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful journal spread with us Adriana!  We hope Adriana's beautiful work inspires you to enter the November challenge!
