Beautiful and Bright {Mixed Media Art Journal}

bright colors

I have been doing a lot of sketching and watercolor painting lately, and I was in the mood to do another “crazy, messy” art journal page for a change. I recently learned of a new product called High Flow Acrylic, and I was intrigued by the fluidity of the medium, without it being “watered down.” So I decided I could get the same effect by mixing acrylic paint with acrylic ink. I painted sections on my pages and then sprayed with water and let it run. Then I randomly added bleeding art tissue paper pieces with decoupage, sprayed with more water and let it run some more. The last layer is just random stamps (using Archival Jet Black).

These bright colors are cheery, and it was a simple but fun page.
