art journal page – art at a minimum (journal52)

art at a minimum3As you can see, it’s catch up time!  That’s what lazy Saturdays are for!  This page is week 9 of Journal52, “artistic restraint”.  The prompt called for using one colour plus black and white and only using one shape.  The background is sprayed with glimmer mists from Tattered Angels.  They shimmer in the light but you have to watch what media you put on top of them because they are water soluble.  I used three different sizes of circles, two were paper towel tubes and one was a plastic lid.  You can always find stuff around the house for your art journal pages, just keep your eyes open!

Americana Craft Paint – Lamp Black, Warm White

Versafine Ink – Black
