Blind 6 Journal Page 'spreading happiness'

Hi everyone!

Today I worked in my small Dylusions Creative Journal creating a page based on the 'blind 6 challenge'. This is where you blindly select 6 products to use on your page, only using those 6 products, along with other black and/or white products.

I blindly selected 3 acrylic paints in mint, teal and classic red. I chose one Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals powder in Bratwurst Brown, I picked one distress oxide ink in seedless preserves, and one distress oxide spray in wilted violet.

I also added black acrylic paint, white Liquitex ink, used Sharpie paint pen, a black POSCA pen and a black Portfolio oil pastel.

Once again the blind 6 challenge was a success!

This stream had to be recorded in two parts due to connection issues, so to watch click on the links below:

Art Journal Page 235

Hi everyone!

Seems like I'm still on the 'HOPE' feeling with my page today. HOPING (no pun intended) things lighten up soon!

Today's page (the colours anyway) was inspired by my grandson, Justin. I'd recently made an altered file folder for his sister, Amelia, and Justin said he'd like one also. I asked him what colours he wanted and he replied 'gray, blues and light purple'. That's where my background colours came from today!

Only once the background was done did I decide to slap an image on it, a quote and call it done LOL.
