Guess what I did with my empty tubes of paint…I put water in them. Something simple that led to a whole lot of play. This created a very very watery paint in the tubes which was just perfect for squirting, flinging, and dripping. On a sunny afternoon I headed outside and made colorful splots of paint!

I’m letting the color fly through the air on a large pad of watercolor paper but this would work on any paper.
Now I have a great stash of papers to cut up for an art journal or a collage but it will be a while before I use them….why? Because I like looking at them just as they are right now!

This art journal page is nothing to sneeze at…because I did all the sneezing last week which led me to use an entire box of tissues…which is where I grabbed that great piece of pattern that started the whole page. I’ve got the entire process…well not the sneezing…in a video and guest post on Julie Balzer’s blog.
And there was treasure hidden under a flap on the box too that will definitely be showing up in my art journaling! See the video and photos here.
