Artmarks 30 Day Summer Challenge 2017 - Days 19 & 20

Hello Everyone!

We're two thirds through this challenge now, and my journal is starting to fill up. It's interesting to look through for inspiration, although I tend to just go for it, trying not to overthink the page.

Here are my latest two pages...

Day 19 - Scattered - Very simple pen drawn mandala, over a background made with leftover paint from day 18's page.

Day 20 - Scratched - I used Dylusions paint on this one, scraping it on with a palette knife, then scratching into the paint with the tip. Sketched leaves with charcoal pencil, then added marks, scribbles, splatters and a Tim Holtz quote sticker.

Wishing you all a wonderful, creative day!

  2. Your simple page of leftover paint and Mandela is beautiful, I really like it's simplicity and fresh vibe 😀. Dylusions paints are always so vibrant and the way you applied them with a palette knife really gives a beautiful translucency and depth of layering. I love the detail you added with your doodles, signature splatters, scratches and leaf drawings too. It all draws the eye towards the lovely quote you added, which I can really relate too as it's so positive 😀. Thanks for getting creative, it's always a pleasure to see you at Art Journal Journey. Hope you are having a great week! J 😊
