Mixing Watercolors & Acrylics

Happy Tuesday!!

I had about an hour last night to do something creative in the studio so I decided to mix watercolors with acrylics.  I like that the acrylics don't activate after they are dry but the watercolors can be moved around a little more as I keep working.  What are you experimenting with this week?

Have a blessed day!

Using at Least Five Layers in Art Journaling...

Hello!!

This challenge was so much fun because I love working with many layers!  I kept it at five layers but feel I could have continued on with more...so is the nature of layering!  Have fun this week exploring multiple layers.

Have a blessed day!

Art Challenge:  Using at Least Five Layers
Journal Prompt:  Give Me a High Five


1. Glue inky paper to base paper with adhesive.

2. Stitch a stack of inky paper and text papers.

3. Cut shapes out of a black tag, smudge white paint all over it and then stitch it to the paper stack.

4. Adhere paper stack to page.  Stamp marks with black and white acrylic paint.  Add marks with Stabilo pencil.


5. Finish by adding words cut from an old book. Stamp the #5 (this is an old foam stamp and I don't know who makes it) with black acrylic paint.

Repeating Elements in Art Journaling...

Hello!

Pattern is all around us.  Each day we see pattern in nature, consumer packaging, clothing, etc.  When using repeating elements in art journaling consider using shapes, color, words, etc.  For my design, I chose to repeat a shape by connecting it on the page.  To unify my pattern, I added handwriting inside each shape and stenciled small circles over the top.  Have fun this week exploring repeating elements.

Have a  blessed day!
