Creativity takes Courage... 33

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 13, 2015 @ 8:18 AM | , , , , , , ,

Hi there! Today I have a couple of art journal pages to share featuring a variety of products and techniques.
I was inspired by Gayle's beautiful art journal pages that may be found here. I was going for a watercolor look but ended up stamping and painting the face using acrylics. Obviously lots of room for improvement! practice, practice, practice... 
There are so many layers and various techniques such as collaging, stenciling, painting, stamping, etc...






I'm joining along with the following challenges:
Craft Stamper Take it, Make it Challenge "Take a Technique" and use one or more of the following processes in your art: Ink Stitch Paint Collage Print Paper(and include stamping somewhere!)
the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym challenge where the theme is: Proverbs & Sayings: I stamped "Creativity takes Courage"
for color inspiration, the Scrap Around The World challenge. I was inspired by the aquas, blues, purples and yellows:
and Kim Dellow's Show Your Face challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by tomorrow to see a project I created as a guest designer for Gina's Designs.
Be Sweet ;)
