This journal page started with a side from a Barnes & Nobel bookseller bag. I used some matte medium and attached it to some watercolor paper, and then I used some SILKS paints to paint over it.
I added some washi tape, a die cut wave edge and seagull along with a bunch of die cut little whales. Then I added the ahoy wording using paints and a white pen.
Although I think its a little bottom heavy, I love recycling a bag into an art piece, and I love how the SILKS colors work on the bag and make the black line images pop. That was all an experiment to me, and I have another similar bag (not with a whale) that I am going to definitely use to make another page.
I am linking this to Art Journal Journey because the May theme is one of my favorite art themes, the Sea.
So our weather has turned gorgeous, and earlier today I went walking with a friend along a newly finished walking trail in a town near my home. What a beautiful walk it was, very flat with lots of lakes along the trail. The big thing here is to turn old railroad tracks into walking trails. What a great thing.
After our walk we went out for sandwiches and of course we chatted up storm. It was such a fun and relaxing day out. I loved being out in the sunshine too.
Tomorrow is suppose to be beautiful too. Yahoo!
