Today’s art journal adventure comes from the Media Mash-up from Pink Poodle. Surprisingly, I didn’t use any of my new stuff I bought today. Just goes to show you can make beauty from what you have on hand without spending a fortune on all the newest stuff.
Pink Poodle pulls art journal prompt cards and we do what the cards say on the page. These are the prompts I used on this page:
Music or Book pages
Markers-I used water-based markers and spritzed them with water. I tipped the page and the color ran all over the place. I used the markers to make the circles in pink and highlighted them with teal, dark teal and lime green.
Tissue paper-I used white and it became transparent on the page, but added texture.
Finger Paint- I used Prange glitter watercolors and Lyra water-soluble crayons. I wet the crayon marks and smeared them with my fingers.
Circles-which I had already put on my page.
Gesso-I watered it down and went over the page lightly. I used the straight gesso on the centers of the circles.
Stencil-I used the stencil to make the circles at the beginning.
I really like the way it turned out, even though I used colors I rarely ever use-blues and green (I did have to throw in some pink anyway). I’m sure these colors came from Marta. She often uses those in her work.
With a quote or phrase, I think this one will be finished.
