Random Painty Journal Play !!!!

Good morning creative people
Tracy here........

Sometimes you just feel like playing don't you ????
 
Just being able to experiment and play without worrying about the end result or having a preconceived idea of how something should look........






Well that was how I felt today, I wanted the freedom to be able to create something totally random, so I got out my Dina Wakley paints in Lime, Turquoise, Magenta as well as Black and White along with some Liquitex acrylic paint in Deep Magenta and Golden acrylics in Primary Yellow and Teal and started to layer in my fabulous Dylusions Journal.......



I laid down random colours using and old credit card and smearing colours with my fingers. I kept adding and layering until I got to a happy place !!

Dina's paintbrushes are fabulous for adding details and I painted in some black circles to frame the paint colours underneath adding scratches into the wet paint in places to add some texture.....



I finished off with some white paint and used a white gel pen to add some detail work. 

I may keep this as it is or I may cut it up into pieces at a later date and use in other journal pages !!

Sometimes a little random painty play is all you need to brighten your day !!

Have a great weekend
Xxx

Excellent painty playing, bright colours & circles of all different types....
I'm kinda glad I'm late reading this one as all I have done today (in a creative sense) is "PLAY"!! For the first time in so long, I lost myself in just adding paint, scraps, heat embossing & more. I wasn't (too) concerned with end result. Just needed to escape. I ended up being quite pleased with it so that's a rare bonus on top! Ty for proving playtime is just as (if not more so mentally) important! C
