Hot and Spicy

This is on a piece of brown paper bag.  I started by gluing a partial page from a vintage book. I used my foam spiral stamp and left over acrylic paints from a previous journal page.  I liked the randomness of the colors and added  more paint. Then, I used my dip brush with black India ink to add lines after it all dried.  I like using the dip pen because it will write over all the paint and has a line that isn’t as thick as the Sharpie marker that I have used on some of my other art work. I also used a Wite-out correction pen in a few places. I covered most of those white lines with Caran d’Ache crayons because I thought they were way too bold on the piece.  This will be a page in a journal I hope to make in the future.

    Beautiful ! I love this kind of art, it looks so random and spontanuous, yet it all fits together !

    I LOVE this!! the colors go together so nicely, and something about it seems stainded glass-y (not sure why, maybe the type of paint?). very cool!
