Art Journal page: True Colors

Here is my newest art journal page. I wasn't sure where I was going with it at first. I was just playing around with some spray inks on the background and decided to try out a magazine cutout as a mask. I sponged black paint over it, and outlined the figure with white gel pen. The words are the lyrics to the song "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper. It just popped into my head and I decided to use it.

The background before adding the black paint.


  1. Magazine cut outs are such a great way to mask. I really like your piece & the way the silhouette shouts out from the background.

  2. Love the technique. The best art occurs when there is no plan but just a desire to play.
