Monday is here again. Another new week. Hopefully for me this week won't have much snow or ice and lots of sunshine. Winter weather is getting old by late January. :)
So today my entry for Art Journal Journey is this mixed media piece. It was quite an adventure to make it, and that works with this month's theme New Year: New Adventures.
I began using a red pastel and coloring a piece of watercolor paper. I sprayed the page with water and then used an old credit cards to scrap the page and give it more of a sprayed effect. (Thanks for that suggestion too Susi.) Then a added a few strips of red origami paper.
I used some darker red paint and a stencil to add some texture details. I also used the end of a tape roll and red paint to add some circles.
Once dry, I added lots of paper bits including that beautiful bird which came out of a magazine. Then when those were dry I added some final touches- little felt hearts, a cardboard star, paper triangles to make a bunting, some fabric daisies, a little gemstone heart and finally some sticker letters.
And I also have a few more photos from my trip to Salisbury Beach Saturday to share with you. CJ you might even recognize some of these views!
Look at all the ducks slipped around on the ice. Not sure what yummy morsels were there that they eating.
It was a good weekend for me. Hope yours was too. Thanks for visiting, and happy start of your week.
