The Wild and Tame – Art Journal

“The Wild and the Tame wrestle in me, neither win, neither want to.” Tyler Knott Gregson

Love this poem – so true!

I used some of my old calendar pages with my prints as collage material – and then stamped with some of my buildings stamps. I am trying to make an effort to use more of the stuff I have been collecting for some time …what is the point to wait for the “perfect” moment- just make it the perfect moment and get some space back- LOL

I love how the prints of my painting blend in with the Stroll stamps. The yellow stripe on the bottom is washi tape – I just thought I needed to pick up the yellow of the painting again and I love the effect. Since it is washi tape with really low and bad adhesive I applied some Gel Medium underneath to make sure it sticks.

I added some Viarco Graphite for color inside the buildings- I love using those- the colors are just o beautiful.

Here are some of the supplies I used for this spread

    I have started to give any craft supply away that I haven’t used in over 3 years. That includes some of the “saving for the perfect” project items. Silly when I think about it. My washi tape does not stick in my art journal (over paint) so thanks for the suggestion of the gel medium.

      I hear you :) It is funny how we are all little magpies collecting shiny objects – but here is to using them :)

    I know what you mean about using/using up stuff you already have. I was thrilled to use up 2 glue sticks over the weekend. It’s the little things that make all the difference in my life. :-)
