Paint Party Friday...

Hello my sweet freinds
I am back to show you what I have been
playing with!





I have been playing around in my Art Journal



This technique is done by using post-it notes
to do the masking.. So Fun!!




It was so much fun.
I couldn't stop with just one page.



Most of this page was done with watercolor crayons. 
And also some acrylic paints.  




I found this technique on YouTube and the Artist
showing this technique name is Paula Phillips.
I really enjoyed her videos..

If you would like to see how this technique is done
here is the YOUTUBE VIDEO!
Just to let you know there are more than one Video..



I am linking this to Paint Party Friday..



I do hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.. 
Thanks so much for stopping..

Hugs, Linda

What beautiful art pages, Linda! Love, love the colors. Each color makes you feel a little different while looking at it. I keep bouncing back and forth between which is my favorite......and I can't choose. :) LOVE that block/masking design. The little bird particularly captures my heart.

Neat pages, using an SU set that I still love (but can't think of the name; my mind is going!). The bird and the butterfly/moth really pop against the rich paint tones.
