Today's Art Journal play


What I did today was basically play around with black Gesso. I am in LOVE with it now!

I painted the page with it to start........then painted on some red then added the circles, collaged on the other stuff. I painted a bit of cream on with a dry brush and attached the photocopy of the tree. I LOVED this tree. I found a quote that I loved to go with it. It needed something different so I added masking tape. Love the effect.........and I distressed the page with sandpaper-I love the overall effect of the page with the distressed look.

Love this and love the saying! How clever to use masking tape! I recently acquired some blank canvass but I haven’t the courage to try it yet …lol
