Colour my world

Inspired by this weeks DLP prompt (acrylic paint) I decided to paint my art journal spread without using a brush. I had some leftover paper scraps, math pages among others and decided this would be a good spot to produce something for the Stampotique Designers challenge (circles), the Stampinback April challenge (Art) and the SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge (Make Your Own Background).

I just received some new stash, and this was a chance to experiment with it: acrylic paints ( a set of Fresco Finish paints in tropical colours, and some others in pink and green), a little skull guy from Stampotique, Idiot Flowers from Stampinback and Sharpies in bright pastel colours.

The page without paint with can be seen here, I had glued torn scraps on this spread already a few days ago. Since I wasn't using a brush, I spread gesso with the side of a plastic card and the paints with a palette knife (trying to make circles, hmm). Parts of the papers show better than others, because some of the paints are more translucent than others. I used peg stamps for the text on the left side and VivaLasVegaStamps Steampunk letters for the blocks underneath the skull guy.
