More art journal pages

It's been a busy art journaling week in the mustard studio...

BALANCE was done with recycled papers cut into letters glued over a background of black gesso, spray paints and inks through letter and number stencils and 2 small snowflakes.  Can you see the snowflakes?!

All about BALANCE

"A" made from used Java Stop punch cards :)

"B" is for BALANCE...aren't we all seeking this?

"C" is for card...who remembers when every library book had a paper card in it?  I do!!!

This page(woman mono print) in my junque art journal demanded a simple finish so I used hardware store letter stickers and spelled out CAN DO.

This next spread in my Inspiration Wednesday journal was so much fun to put together with rusty brown, blues and of course lovely TEXTURE.  If you are interested in seeing some fun videos done by Donna Downey, the genius behind Inspiration Wednesday check out her YouTube channel here.

"Believe you can and enjoy life" was created by rubber stamping the letters over a page that started off with paint colors leftover on a palette.  The paints were smooshed onto a journal page(manila file) and finished with a brown glaze. Glazing really shows off the texture and gives the page dimension and energy.

Do you have any creative plans this weekend?!  As I finish up my snowflake daily challenge, I'm already thinking about trying to make some assemblage art. Here's hoping I make something worth sharing ;-)

Thanks for dropping by the mustard blog today!  Peace
