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!
