If you want to join in with making an Attitude of Gratitude Journal through the month of November click through to the Challenge blog.
Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Seasons.
Today's art challenge was to 'use various household objects to print with on your page today'.
Using several colours of acrylic paint I randomly smeared the paint over the page.
I gathered together some household items ~ jar of Vaseline, toothbrushes, cookie cutters and some wire wool. I have to admit to buying the cookie cutters purely for art purposes. I wouldn't like anyone to be under the impression I cook!!!
I put some acrylic paint on my plate and then stamped with the hearts down the right side. I used the bottom of the tub of vaseline on the left and the circles at the bottom are from twisting the wire wool on the page.
I stamped again using a lighter colour of acrylic.
I randomly stamped with two different stamps and Archival Ink.
Then I sprayed over the page with orange ink and pink ink and let it move about the page before blotting it with my rag.
I stamped the lines for the journaling and wrote between them. I stamped a border round the edges of the page ~ but you could doodle this with pen. And finally stuck on the verse.
I really like this page. I was concerned at one point because when I had used the household objects to stamp with they just looked unconnected on the page. However when I sprayed ink over the top the page somehow came together.
I love serendipitous things like that. Have fun with your page today.
See you tomorrow.
