We had a challenge from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer for Art Journal Every Day to use newspaper in an art journal page. I'm really enjoying this challenge, here's my first page using newspaper, I'm sure I'll be doing more!
The backround is red and blue acrylic painted with a dry paint brush and white acrylic through a hexagon stencil. Then I put my home made black texture paste through the mini tile stencil. I really like the effect:
I added punched scalloped circles and daisies from newspaper. I used a black bit of the newspaper for the daisies and love how one of them has the word 'jelly' - I love jelly :)
I don't like this page that much. Still, it reflects too much thinking!
This is the scripture I'm going to meditate on to help me with not overthinking things:
Thou dost keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on thee,
because he trusts thee.
