Smeared & Smudged is having a week-long "kick-start your art" challenge to create themed art-journal pages. I don't art journal. I'm not even a big fan of the mixed media trend. However, I like the idea of trying something different and forcing myself to do something a bit creative every day. So. Out of my little box I pop.
Today's theme is: 3 PRIMARY COLOR DRIPS
Again, I'm not a mixed media artist so I figure it's more of a week to play with trying out techniques I generally don't use. So (please forgive the curl- I haven't flattened it yet)
I laid down swipes of 4 TH stains on white paper (I don't have a book for this but I might bind the papers together at a later date).
I used clear EP to lay the SU Medallion stamp on top.
I dripped red, blue and yellow heavily watered down acrylic paints down the page from the top edge.
After dry, I wiped the paint off the medallion with a baby wipe (glad I kept a pack of those around!)
"it's time to pull back the curtain" was written with a large silver paint Sharpie and to make it a bit more legible, I wrote it again on top of the silver with a thin black Sharpie.
