#ARTifacts - Collage/Mixed Media Art Journal Page

A collage/mixed media page from my #ARTifacts journal.
Keeping a monthly record of work & mediums used. Trying new things like rub on lettering,  crackle paste & a paint marker with stencils.

The front cover of my art journal for this year.
I am always open to 'Change' as my art  'Story' continues it will always remain 'Unfinished'.

Complex Simplicity

Attempting to portray how the creative part of me works with photos.
 Things + ideas + artwork + creative spaces (inside/outside) + feline friend + light.

Birds & Bees

 Spring is here!
Time to give this old stool a new coat of paint.
 All white with a black pattern on the top. I just used painter's masking tape to make the design.
Hand painted a leopard print with some coloured spots onto the legs.
 Found a tutorial for the leopard print at Tracey's Fancy.
Tracey has lots of really great furniture painting tutorials.  

 Used the same colours for the trims on the legs.
 Stenciled little spots around the edge of the top.
The stool will be used as a bedside table.
