Recycled Journal Page


Life

This journal entry started when I was cleaning up from my “I Need Chocolate” painting. I had finished painting the back of the wood panel with Berry Wine and had quite a bit of paint left on my makeshift palette. Rather than let it go to waste I decided to grab a paper towel. I noticed it had a decorative edge which made me smile as I knew I could emphasize it. I laid the towel flat on my desk and sprayed it with a misting of water. Then I started dabbing on the left over Berry paint. Alternating the paint with spraying more water on the towel the paint started to bleed really nicely. Once the paint was all used up and the towel was “pretty” I dabbed the towel with a cloth towel to soak up excess moisture. When it was dry enough to handle I glued the paper towel down in my art journal and let it dry. I used Stabilo markers on the preexisting decorative edge of the towel and brightened the colors to make them ‘P0P’ I used yellow paint to add the dots to the flowers along with the colors on the towel the yellow changed colors accordingly so it turned out very nice. I used a stencil sponge and black rubber stamping ink to stencil the word “Life.” Next comes the fun part… writing down whatever words popped into my head that related to life. The page has a nice “fabric” type feel to it and it’s soft to touch. I’m happy with how it turned out. =) Happy Hump Day! I hope your creative juices are flowing like a river! I’d love to know what you’re up to so leave me a comment and let me know! I’d LOVE to hear from you.
