My First One Little Word Page
I've decided that my One Little Word scrapbook this year is going to be something between a scrapbook and an art journal. I love the idea of art journaling, but I don't consider myself an artist, and I get so tied up in knots worrying about it looking good that I can't start. I figure that using one new to me technique on each art journal type page. I was watching this video at Two Peas in a Bucket, it seemed easy enough to do a painted background. I have khaki acrylic paint, that I used to form the background for this page. When the paint dried, I used an oil pastel pencil to write the verse directly on. It smudged a little, but I'm trying to forgive myself for that. Nothing's perfect the first time you try it. What do you think?
