SHINE

Hello Hello
Just wanted to touch base and share another art journal page, I think this is the third one that I did but for some reason this one didn't get bound into my art journal so I may have to go back and add it in later.
Anyways this one is super clean and really simple and you know what...?
This one is my favorite so far and I think the reason is because it is clean and simple.

I do think it's funny because this one was also inspired by song lyrics but this time the band is Mumford & Sons...probably one of my all time favorites... and the particular song is Wilder Mind from their new album, Wilder Mind.
Another reason I like this one so much is because I was able to experiment with some new paints this & this that I picked up at Target...and well that is always fun no matter the out come but I have to admit I was rather surprised. This paint is comparable to Folk Art but I really like this jar far better so I know that I'll be picking up some more next time I'm at Target. Plus the color palette that I used - the muted colors - is probably another reason why this one stands out...kinda shabby chic!

Along with the new paint I also was able to play with a new type of metallic rub or rather new to me I should say and I love it. It's dreamy, smooth and silky and so far as I can tell a lot goes a long ways. 
It's by DecoArt and the product is called Metallic Lustre, this particular color is a deep brown called Iced Espresso and it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm excited to use it in some Holiday projects this season. I have a couple of mixed media ideas that I'd like to try and I think that this will add a rich elegance to several of them, so be on the look out for those.
I also picked up the Metallic Lustre in Black Shimmer at Hobby Lobby but I haven't had time to play with it yet...I imagine it will be just as divine but I'll let you know.
So here you have it
...shine...
I hope you like it and try some art journaling for yourself. It really can be whatever you want it to be so go for it!
Thanks!!!
