I've given up

today I have an art journal page to share with you...inspired by the Rock N Rolla challenge over at Smeared and Smudged...someone picked an awesome music video by Tom Petty, don't come around here no more...I love that video its so fun...now who is the awesome, smart, gorgeous person that picked that? oh ya it was me :) well since I picked it I guess I better play along :) here is my page



I had a blast making this...so to start off I gesso'd my page with white then I took some tea (thinking of the AIW tea party) and sprinkled it all over my page and got it super wet then let it dry...this made my page all tea died and spotty...I then took the same tea and brushed it into a cup and added a bit of water and dripped it down the page...then I wanted more drips so I took black paint and put allot up top and dripped it down the page and it didn't dry fast enough so I took my heat gun to it and this caused some awesome texture, I did some black masking, colored my Mad Hatter image and glued it on modge podged the whole thing, added my die cut words and doodled over them...wrote some more lyrics to the song and added my swirl from the circus procession set and I think that's it...fun fun fun




you still have a day to enter the challenges over at smeared and smudged...see ya there :)
