Hi, I’m visiting Jade’s blog today.  I created this Art Journal page using Dylusion sprays and added her white linen spray on top to create these beautiful pastel colors.  Then I outlined the various lines and drips the sprays made and doodled all over the page.  I titled the page, “Before the Ink Dries.”  This is one of my Documented Life journal pages.

Happy Creating

Art Challenge:  As A Layer Element
Journal Prompt:  Surviving the Elements

Focal Point (2)

I chose the Art Challenge:  As A Layer Element

Before I created this page, I couldn’t get the 7 Design Elements out of my head: line, form, texture, color, value, space and shape. I think my favorite Design Elements are color and texture.  Running my hands over a completed page is so satisfying.
