AJJ ~ The meaning of ... Art

 Hello everyone, 

As Decembers Guest Host @ Art Journal Journey 
i'm sharing my second journal spread 

I adore every aspect of art it allows me to explore, experiment and express. 
Nothing compares to the feeling of bringing a blank page to life with colour.. 

Collage and texture paste through stencils helps breaks up this surface 
where alcohol inks are dripped, sprayed and teased around the page. 


The stamped and painted brushes represent a small selection of tools 
I use to help me discover, demonstrate and make visual noise on a page. 


and not forgetting those paint tubes like little houses 
that help keep our precious paints all safe and sound.. 


Art it's within me.. like my beating HEART.. 

Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

I love this spread, Tracey. It describes art perfectly and matches your theme so well. I love the brushes and the tubes of paint that extend past the page, just like a real tube would. they work well with the alcohol ink background. This is a fabulous entry for your theme at Art Journal Journey.
