Art Journal... Messy/Funtime!!!

Well I have managed to have a couple of hours of fun this morning, with the house to myself and no one asking what on earth are you doing???

I have just done an intro page really, so still have the prompt page to do. But I have had fun and I'm pretty pleased with how it has turned out.... I might doodle somemore but thought I'd share what I have so far...

I used Acrylic paint's for the background straight onto my watercolour paper (slightly watered down), made a couple of circle mask and sponged through different colours, I then used old bottle top's dipped in the paint for the bubble effect, the edge of a piece of chipboard dipped again in the paint and printed on... I then stamped my title on text paper from and old book cut this out and stuck on, the rest of the title I stamped straight onto the page then coloured in... I then had a brave moment and let some paint drip down the page.... Had a real fear moment of OMG!!! at this point I was saying 'what am I doing?' but I like how it turned out....

I did however have a messy time, managed to dip my arm into the tile I was using as a pallet but cleaned up before I had the brain wave of printing my elbow so as not to waste the paint... lesson for next time this happens :).....
