I spent a few precious hours playing in the art room yesterday and today...more of Michelle's GPP Street Team Crusade for this month. I played a bit with mixing white with each of the following: burnt sienna, Payne's Gray, and Quin Magenta. I worked with an old gift card and scraped on some paint thicker than others. If you look closely, I stamped a bit in the upper right corner using a cork, blotting it a bit with a paper towel afterwards to soften the circles and make them blend in a bit more.
The corrugated cardboard on the left had been used for mark making. I peeled away the backing to make it a bit thinner and flatter, but then went ahead and glued on a tiny umbrella from a strawberry smoothie I enjoyed at an "Artfest" on Solomon's Island, MD. The gal comes from a recent mail catalogue and the paper behind her from a mail art friend. A bit of stamping, a bit of jounaling with a fine tip Sharpie, and "tah dah!" another page!
Since I always use too much paint, no matter how hard I try, I always keep some extra paper nearby.
Except for the round "donuts," everything here is scraped as well. These are rather large sheets, so I'll ending up tearing them down to size and use them as pages for a future journal. I love accumulating a stash like this!
