When creating an art journal page, I have a tendency to keep adding too much color, texture, collage elements, and paint to a page. Then it looks like one very large mess. Fortunately, I took a class with Dina Wakley. She said when you have a background that is too busy then block it out with random shapes. I used Dina Wakley’s Night acrylic paint to cover the background. I didn’t like the page before but now I like it. The page now has more focus.
