There is no one way to art, there is many ways, there is YOUR way!

I was experimenting a bit with a different color combination here and I really like the outcome.

I used Liquitex Soft Body Paints: Titanium White and Mars Black to mix a grey, and mixed the Bright Blue with the Titanium White to mix a lighter blue. I also added Iridescent Bright Gold to the page. I love how it came out.

I did sculpt the plants a bit with the brush – most of the background texture however comes from the masking tape that was layered to the paper.

I am using grey a lot lately- is that a color that you often use?

    Aaah, love love love! At first I thought you’d been using a stencil for your plants! The colour combo is so great! I hardly ever use grey or if I do I often end covering it with more intense colours. I’m sure you had a great time doing this.

      Thanks muriel– LOL- nope no stencils used. And yes, as you I usually tend to be drawn to the more intense colors- but this was fun!

    I too thought you were using a stencil. I love how this page turned out!! It’s really beautiful. I love the colors especially that pop of gold. I am going to have to play with this palette!! I think you need to lay this one down on canvas :)

      mmmhhhh- on canvas- that is a really good idea I think I will try this soon. Thanks for triggering that idea, Laura ;)

    This page is so different for you and I love it.
    I never use grey and I love these colors together.
    Thanks for the reminder to try something completely different!

    Just breezing through blogs and this totally caught my eye! I’m so attracted to the background colors with the pops of white….do I use grey? Not very much on my layouts but I love it elsewhere. My whole livingroom is painted a warm grey against white….yum!

The Best Is Yet To Come … or In My Art Journal Today

The best is yet to come – Frank Sinatra

I truly believe in that ..do you ?

This page is actually kind of a cheater page. I love just rubbing the extra paint that I have on my stencils onto a blank page – creating a negative stencil image.Sometimes I paint over parts of it later or do other things with it. But I really loved the colors and how this looked on this spread- so I left as is and just stamped and stenciled in black on top.

Here are the supplies I used- some of the stencils are actually part of the stamp sets for Stampendous

Have the best day today :)

    I think that believing the best is yet to come puts one in the frame of mind to experience just that! Have a lovely day Nat.

    Love it and believe it! Reminds me of the song I think it was Frank Sinatra, wish I was in another of your classes.

Think! It is not illegal yet…

I would like this as a T-Shirt- LOL

Lot’s  of texture and sgraffito with Liquitex Heavy Body Paints accompanied with some stamping on this  spread. An easy and fast page but nonetheless a lot of fun.
