Try It On Tuesday Challenge - Thankful

Hi Everyone! Today, I'm thrilled to be a guest designer over at Try It On Tuesday, for their Thankful Challenge.

I created an art journal page for the challenge.

I started with some collaged book paper scraps, then painted over these with a thin layer of gesso. I used DecoArt Acrylic sprays with a heart stencil, then added scribbled outlines with black Bombay India Ink. I stencilled some more with contrasting turquoise and gold metallic paint, did some doodling, hand-wrote the sentiment, then finished with some painty splatters.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll also pop over to TIOT's Blog, to see what their amazing team have created, and don't forget to join in with the challenge.
