Another mixed media art journal I completed this fall as a gift. The backgrounds are all hand painted using acrylics and stamping. I had fun incorporating old family photos and working some of them into color pages. Every time I create an art journal new ideas emerge, I'm exploring more outside the box and growing. I need to incorporate this freedom into my oil paintings. Why do I feel so restricted when painting in oils? It's time to start experimenting and maybe start using acrylics and oils together. Hmmmm, another road to explore.
