Begin Where You Are


 
Last night while I was finishing up my project for the next Bad Girls Project 52 Challenge to be revealed on Monday, I had extra paint and so I just slabbed it on my art journal. Also whenever I use my Glimmer Mist and Screens, I turn it over and "stamp" on a scrap so I did that here too.  I also made a point to collage really old vintage papers into this one. This page is just a fun page, I wrote "Art Every Day Month" at the top, then said that I found this challenge.  "Begin where you are" is a quote from Violette's book, and the doodles are also her inspiration. The scrolls along the right are with my long-neglected foam stamps.

I found at Michael's some Golden Fluid Acrylics on clearance, also some Liquitex Glossies on clearance so I used some of those along with my craft acrylics, Copic markers, oil pastels, and gel medium to adhere the collage elements.
 
 
Begin Where You Are. Where Are YOU?
