Psychedelic art journal page

I really shouldn't listen to 70's rock while creating. This page looks like the Scooby Doo party bus and I'm not sure what happened. I think I just wanted to use my Aqua Tints to color it and I only have the Bright and Beautiful set and Essentials right now so I for some reason decided to use ALL of the colors at once thinking it would be fun to keep the warm colors in the speech bubble and the cold colors outside. It started looking a lot like Halloween before adding the turquoise and then it just went to the dark side of the 70's from there. I hade a good laugh and don't mind. It's just an art journal and I had a good couple of hours doodling and coloring everything.

The fun part and the part that I will take with me to new, a bit more sane, projects were the stencilling using Aqua Tints in gold and silver. I used a bit of cut and dry foam to pick the color up and dabbed it over the stencils and I really like the effect. Will be seen in future cards and projects I'm sure.

So, not everything needs to be perfect in the Art Journal as long as I have fun. This is a page I made for my bi-weekly mixed media posts at CiLi in Papers. I hope you got a good laugh at least. The journaling says POW and then smaller: All of a sudden it will happen. It's a slogan from a lottery ticket in Sweden meaning that one day it's your turn to win and I believe in the power of positive thinking. One day something amazing will happen to me.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
