Painted Backgrounds

Spring appears to have sprung in the Bay Area. We went from cold and rain to sun and 80 degrees in less than a week. I was inspired to play with paint and bright, cheerful colors. Using Claudine Hellmuth's green acrylic, I covered 2 art journal pages. I found a great tip to help when using acrylics on paper. (Sorry, tune in to Tuesday's Tip for the information!) Then, I took a bright yellow and orange and made splatters. That was the starting point. I pulled out some images, stamps, and tapes (of course). Below is the double page spread:
I also used portions of flower punches to add interesting elements. A close-up of the left page side:

Bright and cheerful pages calling out for Spring.
