Art journaling doesn’t have to just happen in an art journal. It can happen on say…a picnic table. It’s the same type of play, just on a bigger scale and I still consider it art journaling.
It all started with the yellow picnic table. Notice the spray paint over spray on there? That was an Oops – an Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly. It went from being all pretty yellow to having a dirty looking top.
I like to paint and art journal while sitting at the table. While stuck on a canvas, I began to fixate on that spray paint stain on the table. One thing led to another, and then I was just messing around on the table with paint.
Circles covered the top in no time at all! But I wanted more layers. This really is just like art journaling just not in an art journal.
What paints am I using? A combination of little tubs of sample paints from Home Depot and my regular acrylics. When I was all finished, I sealed it all with a UV sealer and protector from the hardware store.
If you’ve seen much of my play, you probably knew there would be some scribble writing. I went around the circles with high flow paint in a fine liner. I am very impressed with how it has help up to the outdoors!
Thanks to the Oops that marred my yellow table, I ended up with a far more colorful table to enjoy the outdoors. I love a good Oops!
