This is a 9" x 12" page in my mixed media journal. It was inspired by a simple technique as described by Chris Cozen in the book Acrylic Color Explorations. I used only one flat brush , the same stroke, and various mixing of a few paint colors to vary the hues and tones. I've been seeing lots of beautiful poppy art on the blogs lately so I had to make one of my own. This is definitely something different for me. A fairly quick and fun lesson definitely worth trying again:) Because it's always fun to learn something new don't you think?
4" x 4" canvas boards using napkins, gesso, vintage images from Retro Café Art, words from ARTchix Studio, bits of recycled dryer sheet, paper flowers, pearls, Baker's twine, shells found on the beach, and glitter glue.
Joining Art Journal Journey ( one last time for the theme this month of "in my garden there is"; Moo Mania and More (theme is summer); Paint Party Friday; the Simon Monday Challenge blog (add some texture); and the Simon Wednesday Challenge blog (anything goes).
