Donna Downey’s Inspiration Wednesday is so much fun to watch. She is so creative. While watching the video, I decided to play along. Usually, I do not have the same materials and supplies that she has, so I use what I have. The small Dyan Reaveley journal was perfect for this technique. I punched holes in various pages before I began to play. I substituted the tape she used for the mesh you see above. I used fluid and high flow golden acrylic paint on the background and then covered the page with gold paint and acrylic glazing liquid. When I wiped the gold paint off, some of it stayed in the mesh. I loved the background so much I couldn’t finish the page.
How do you continue to add to a journal page when you love a background so much?
