Art Journal Calendar - September 2017

Hello Everyone!

I've been beavering away this afternoon, making my art journal calendar pages for September. 

Art Journal Journey has a new challenge today, set by Yvonne, and the theme is Colour In My World. Has there ever been a theme that so fitted me?! As you know, I love my bright colours. So here's my bright and colourful spread.

To make my page background, I used a 5x3" Gelli Plate, Dylusion's Paint, and PaperArtsy Kim Dellow masks. I filled in some white areas with turquoise paint, seen quite clearly in the bottom righthand corner. 

I added punched tags, smudged black pencil outlines, and used PaperArtsy Everything Art and Darkroom Door stamps for the title.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
