Rae Missigman's Artmarks 30 Day Summer Challenge 2017 - Day 28

Hello folks!

Artmarks Day 28 - Metallic


On today's page I thought I'd try sketching some birds (inspired by Susi/Froebelsternchen's occasional bird sketches). I used black paint through a fine nozzle, so all of the black outlines, writing and marks on my page have a little dimension. There is a little bit of collage with teabag papers, and I added colour and marks with Dina Wakley Media Acrylics (Sky, Lime, Magenta). As the theme was 'Metallic', I used Golden Fluid Acrylic in iridescent bronze and a cardboard tube to make some circles, and finished with watery splatters.



And, as I have a quote on my page, I'm linking up to Art Journal Journey's Poetry in Motion challenge.

I'm also linking to Paint Party Friday.

Happy Friday!
