Simon Says Stamp Challenge Entry #3

Hello Friends,

Another day another entry! My third submission for the SSS Monday Challenge is another page from my art journal. My art journal is a great place to experiment with new techniques and to just LET GO and DO instead of THINK. The way I see it each new page is an opportunity to just make a mess and see where it takes me. Sometimes I create something I don't like at all but as I build layers it eventually turns into something I'm satisfied with. I do try to create my pages from start to finish but it doesn't always happen that way. I also tend to work on multiple journals at once. For example if I have any excess medium that I don't want to waste I will apply it to the pages of another journal and  then I can come back to it later.

Here is an example of what I meant when I said I like to just DO and not think. I started with a blank page that I covered in white gesso. I had no real idea of what I wanted to do or what colors I was going to use. I did however have an idea of what mediums I wanted to use so I gathered my supplies and just played. This spread is the result of scrap tissue, washi tape, India ink and water color. It has become one of my favorite pages because of its simplicity.
