Itinerary 19

My Art Journal Caravan mixed media pages this week focus on the perfect day. I started off with dabs of purple and ochre acrylic paint. I then applied vertical stripes of pastel-coloured oil pastels, blending them with a paper towel. I wrote on the pages using orange and purple Sharpies and stamped on some flower images with pearlescent Brilliance Ink. I drew an arch on each page and doodled inside them, then applying a very thin layer of gesso with a baby wipe.
I hope the pages conjure up thoughts of time spent in the hot sun surrounded by flowers.

My mixed media piece focuses on the verb 'inspire'.
