art journal page


  I love working really wet in my journals.  I slop paint and ink around like crazy.  Tip - don`t wear your favorite jeans when you are letting the paint fly!  Ask me how I know!  I often spritz the paint or ink with water to make it run together and bleed into interesting combinations.  I had been doing that in a journal and realized there was way too much inkéwater on the page and it would never dry so I got out another journal smooshed it down into the excess.  This is the resulting page.  I quite like the way it turned out.

In case you can`t read the quote it says
Expect to have hope rekindled.
Expect your prayers to be answered in wonderous ways.
The dry seasons in life do not last.
The spring rains will come again.

The message on this piece is beautiful. And how fun to use color in such a way- the results are unpredictable and interesting. Thanks for sharing your art!

I haven't wrecked my jeans yet but I have a purple area on my beige carpet! It is such a lovely shade of sparkly fuschia - when it's on paper. Your page looks terrific.

The quote is great and so is your page. I love the way the colors flow across the paper.

Beautiful, optimistic quote. I have found that the "sopping up" paper sometimes becomes a beautiful piece of art in itself. The work I don't plan is often more fun than Plan A.
