Hello Monday my friends! We have a new challenge for you this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - SPRAYS AND SPLASHES. If you like to get messy, this is the opportunity to do that!
I pulled out lots of paints and sprays this week to play with in my art journal.
I started with a collage sheet from Dina Wakley and added some strips of Eastern Influence paper onto it.
Then, I started adding in stenciled images to begin to pull everything together.
And then, I will admit I went a little wild with splashes of Gloss sprays, paint, and ink. Kind of a mess I thought.
So then I smudged in some white and black paint and added some drips. At this point, it really looks nothing like where I began.
I decided I needed some more splashes of color, and added in some pink dots with the end of a wood skewer.
I cut the sheet into four, added some words and images. Then, I decided the white paper in the art journal was too much, so found some old paper that I added in, then added my colorful pieces. More drips and splashes.
Then, I decided to add in a bit more color with oil pastels.
Final step was to cut out some collage tissue and add a few circles to connect all the cards across the pages. It was fun going through my stash to find old photos for each quote.
