Art Journal Page: Color Your World

My newest art journal page!  I love the colors in this one.

I started with a layer of random paper scraps which I covered with a thin layer of gesso. Then I covered the page with drywall tape. I sprayed it with spray ink (some Dylusions and some Glimmer Mist). I lightly splattered the page with some thinned down black paint. The "color your world" came from a catalog for curtains, I think. I didn't want to add a whole lot to this page because I loved how the background turned out.

I talked about taking the spiral out of the sketch book I'm using in an earlier post. I'm still not happy with it,but I'm too stubborn to go buy another journal when I haven't used up this one. I think I'll stick with my current system at least until the end of the year and either buy or make one to start fresh with next year.

  1. These colors are just lovely! How inventive to cover such beauty with drywall tape to bring out the wonder in every single square! I love what you have done with the mists and with your embellies. The colors are divine! xox
