Colour Makes Life More Beautiful - for Scrap Matrix Design team

Hi everyone, today I would like to share my art journal page being my second project for this months challenge at Scrap Matrix.

I recently purchased this awesome Tracy Scott stamp - ETS43  and couldn't wait to have a play.

I decided to go outside of my comfort zone and create with greens.  Yellows I can deal with - greens scare me!!!!  So I have used Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays - Slimed, Lemon, Eggplant, Olive, and Ocean.  I love the way these react to each other 

and if you wipe across with a paper towel roll before they are completely dry the effect is awesome.

I have then added contrasting colour Fuchsia

To push all this to the background I have used a Paper Artsy Stencil PS201 and the white gloss spray with a dauber.

and again wiped across with a paper towel roll so I didnt get such a defined look.

Using the Paper Artsy Smoothy Cardstock I have stamped the Tracy Scott Stamp ETS43 and coloured with Paper Artsy Paints - highlighting with flourescent pencils.

I fussy cut the images and adhered them to the page.  Once dry I have highlighted and outlined with white and black pens 

and addd a quote from Art by Marlene

Here are some Close Ups

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to enter this months challenge.

Art Journal Page for Scrap Matrix Design Team

Hi everyone, today I would like to share an art journal page I made for this months challenge over at Scrap Matrix - - Drip, Spray, Spritz

Here is my page:

I got the new Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and couldnt help myself but have a play.   They are super awesome and had such fun.  I sprayed and let them do their own thing.

Before drying completely I sponged off with a paper towel roll

Loved it and did one more roll - OH NO - took too much off!!!

So started again - applied gesso and waited for it to dry

Again sprayed the gloss sprays and used a credit card through the Fuchsia colour and splashed with the white

Using the white gloss spray and a dauber I made some circles.  The white is opaque and comes up so vibrant.

I have then used some crayons to colour the circles and create shadows around them.

I decided to add some bigger circles - this time using Paper Artsy Snowflake paint.

Once dry I have added some quotes from Tim Holtz Small Talk, Numbers stamp from 13 arts and graphite sticks around the circles and edge of the page.

Here are some close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have time to enter this months challenge.

Until next time - happy crafting
