My reveal is live on the Off the Rails Scrapbooking blog today.
This month our challenge theme is Recycle/Reuse/Upcycle
I created an Art Journal page using items found around the home.
I rummaged through my kitchen pantry cupboard as well as other hiding places in my home and came up with a collection of items to use:
I also had a paper napkin on my scrapping desk which I treated with some Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals to create a background piece:
And finally decided to use some Food colourings for colour over the top of all my bits and bobs.
I started my gluing my coloured napkin into my journal with Matt Medium. Whilst it was still wet, I started placing my recycled objects onto the page. I added more matt medium over the top and set aside to dry
When dry I added a coat of white gesso with a dry brush.
When this was dry, I sprayed some water onto the page and started adding the food colourings. I sprayed the colours with more water and dried each colour before adding the next. I finished with a light spray of Dylusions Laid Back Lilac ink spray.
I hope you can join us this month. It really is amazing what you can find to use on a project.
I am really looking forward to seeing yours!!
