AJJ - Recycle & Collage

Hi Everyone!

Wow! I can't believe how April is flying and we're already halfway through my Recycle & Collage Challenge at Art Journal Journey! Already 75 entries! Thanks to everyone who has taken part!

Art Journal Journey

Here's another page I made for the challenge...

It's getting really difficult to use the left-hand pages in my journal, I had to remove the last signature! Anyway, on this page I scraped on a couple of DecoArt Media paint colours, then used a baby wipe to remove some colour through sequin waste. I adhered pieces of music sheet, a gelli-printed teabag, and some paper lace. I added drips, marks, scribble journaling, and splatters, then because it was on my desk, I sprinkled on some Seth Apter Patina Baked Texture and heat set it.

Hope you're all having a lovely, creative Sunday!
