Another page completed in my art journal.

 I originally made marks on this page  with leftover paint from previous project. I then added the black and the orange. The bird was one of my own handmade stamps stamped onto another piece of paper and collaged on to the page. I then added some washi tape and some inked corrugated cardboard.

I love the randomness of the marks on leftover paper that is used to clean off your brushes or that you have cleaned your stamps on . I cut some strips from a piece that was lying on my desk and positioned them on a page that I had already  cleaned some stamps on and then  applied some gesso to. I don't know how the page will evolve but I liked the way they looked so I stuck them down.

I am not sure how it will eventually turn out but I just liked the way they looked so I thought I would go with it. All I know is that I want to keep it minimalistic.

Thank you for popping by x

    Lovely pages, I like the way you have used the cut strips in your design, that is something I often do myself. x
