Art Journal Page 3
So Michael's had a coupon for 40% off paints and I decided to try some gloss gel medium. I do like the shine it gives the plain ole cheapo paints. I started by mixing the gel with some blue for the background then i mixed the gel with some glass beads and used a palette knife to spread it onto the page. Then I started with the purple and it made me think of those purple clumps of flowers that bloom in spring and that is how glass beads became flowers. I added the green for the foliage and used some black to accent. The bright colors made me think of the saying "dream in COLOR!" I used an edge punch to make the date tag and that brings me to the end of page 3 in my art journal. I have to say that I am beginning to like the journal. It makes me happy to look back at the previous pages. TTFN!
