Today is just a quick share. I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked in my art journal this week.  I explored mixed media on my Scrapbooking layouts instead so that still counts are art.  You can see what I have been up to here.

I did do one spread in my art journal this week in response to the Get Messy week 2 DREAM prompts and then I came across a quote that summed up exactly what I was thinking so I think I will add this to the page at some point.

Here is my spread.

I have returned to an altered book that I started back in the season of words.  I explored applying chalks with a paint brush.  I acquired a full set of chalks through a Facebook garage sale site and bought them on a whim.  I had no idea why I wanted them or what to do with them. I have used them on some layouts but thought, I would try something different after watching Maremi Small Art do a YouTube video using make up.  And this technique is much like putting on make up.  I also used my new favourite tool – fluid acrylic in a fineliner bottle.

And here are the words that go along with it.


I am all ready for week three now.
