You were born an original, don’t die a copy!

Love this! For this art journal spread I was trying out a new color combination –

which I know I will use again – again- it was good just playing and finding things I would usually not work with :)

I added some texture by mixing in soft body acrylic paints with Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste – and also used several of my stamps- including the new Mark Maker Set.

    This was a great color combination. The yellow is the perfect pop of color.

I painted the collaged background with Alizarin Crimson Hue Permanent acrylic paint, then spray painted over with Light Violet.

Not a color combo that is usually in my repertoire but I liked how it turned out and added a couple white sprinkles too it.

    I like the color combo on your page. I wouldn’t have thought to use those colors together. I do use the purple and red together a bunch. Have a delightful day Nat.

    I wouldn’t have dared this colour combo but it’s really great. Your journaling reminds me of a journal page I did at the beginning of the summer which said:”Sometimes you fail.” But I remember not feeling negative about the failure; it was sort of “I failed, yes, but life goes on.”
