Upcycle/Recycle Art Journal Page

Hello Off the Rails friends,

Deb here with an art journal page based on our October Challenge - Upcycle/recycle.

It took me ages to come up with something but in the end I got there, lol.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all do with this challenge.

I rummaged through my kitchen pantry cupboard as well as other hiding places in my home and came up with a collection of items to use:

I also had a paper napkin on my scrapping desk which I treated with some Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals to create a background piece:
And finally decided to use some Food colourings for colour over the top of all my bits and bobs.

I started my gluing my coloured napkin into my journal with Matt Medium.  Whilst it was still wet, I started placing my recycled objects onto the page.  I added more matt medium over the top and set aside to dry
When dry I added a coat of white gesso with a dry brush.
When this was dry, I sprayed some water onto the page and started adding the food colourings.  I sprayed the colours with more water and dried each colour before adding the next.  I finished with a light spray of Dylusions Laid Back Lilac ink spray.

I hope you can join us this month.  It really is amazing what you can find to use on a project.

I am really looking forward to seeing yours!!
