OWOT prompt 3!

is up over at Truly, Madly, Crafty! This week it was my turn and I just had fun with paint, book pages, quotes and words. It was nice just to let go with the paint, not really worry about what was going on the page and building up layers and texture. Here's some pics of what I did.

January Technique - Paint
This Week's Word - Relax

I have decided to use an old A4 diary to house all my pages for this project, so whether they be scrapbook or more art journal focused they will all be together, which is fine.

I started off by covering my page with some acrylic paint (parchment)

Next I grabbed some watercolour paints and roughly painted over the base paint in blues.

then I added some greens

To add some interest and texture I ripped some strips from an old book and stuck them down, used a lid with white paint on to add some circles and used paint on a piece of card to squish some paint patches onto the page too. I just had fun and did what I felt like to add texture to the pages.

I found a quote I wanted to use, typed it up, printed it out and stuck it the right hand page and added some journalling on a piece of notepaper. I printed out a small photo of my family and stuck this in too. I used a Jenni Bowlin paint dabber in cough syrup around the left edge and made circles across the bottom. I added an Elles studio tab to the top too. To finish off I used some Maya mist in silver and rose pink.

Here is the finished page below:
