I'm continuing to use my altered art journal for my main art lessons this year. I added some collaged papers that I wouldn't mind peeking through
but then when I added paint colours I moved to pink instead of the red. Because I'm doing shine, I decided to make my colours more cohesive with Gold - my favourite is a cheap DecoArt Metallic called "Splendid Gold" from Spotlight - I can usually get this brand on special for around $5 or less so it means I can brayer it on liberally without worrying about the cost ♥ Left page is after gold application, right page is before.
I was just going to use stars as my symbol, but decided I would like to combine the stars with hearts. I coloured sheet music with other metallic paints
and then used a combination of cut hearts with stenciled and punched stars.
Love using found words for this - large print dictionary was the source this time
