|Starting with a leftover paint painted & inked splotched page|
|I traced around a cardboard cylinder for the circles|
|Adding some of the same paint used in the journal background then making marks using |
POSCA paint pens, these circles blend in nicely
|I did not have the same Distressed Alphabet Rubber Stamps so I used these (know idea of the brand)|
|Beautiful messy aftermath! In the right corner you can see the postcard I was creating at the same time.|
Finished Journal Page
|I altered the word from chance to change as I continue with the 52 Small Changes Challenge|
|HMPC for August. As I pondered the word my partner needed , Spirit whispered, "DREAM".|
What I learned
- While I prefer to use the artist's products (it helps support them) I simply can't buy everything nor do I have the room for it. There is nothing wrong with using what you have to recreate the page.
- On the postcard I did not paint enough black and the M was left hanging there. I bugged me so I used a tiny brush to fill in around the M with black paint
- In the lower right hand corner I had gessoed this black spot and hated it. Using the same background paints I covered it up.
