Summer Doodles Day 23

july12 025july12 026july12 027

This page was created in my large journal. I painted the base colors in shades of blues, and greens with a little bit of yellow thrown into the mix. I then watered down some white paint and let it dry just a little bit. After that I used a spray bottle to put a little bit of water on the page, then I wiped the water off with a paper towel. this is what created the interesting texture on the page. I then  applied black paint with an old giftcard  to add the lines. I really don’t know what I should do to finish it. I really like it the way it is.  Let me know  what you think.

Summer Doodles Day 21

This Page is in my Large Journal that I wrote about on Day 12. I had a little help with the background, I let my youngest daughter help me and them we added a white wash. After the whitewash we used a card to create the lines that I let dry for a min or too them used a dry brush to blend them a little bit.

New Sponsor Introduction

CampusBookRentals! They are a great way for you to save money on Textbooks.
Here are a few of their perks that caught my eye:
  • You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • They offer free shipping both ways
  • You can highlight in the textbooks
  • They offer flexible renting periods
  • The best thing is they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

Here is a textbook that I purchased for Design School. I paid over$150 out of pocket for this and if I had, had this service back then I would have only had to pay $39.42 for the whole semester. What a great savings. 

And, remember with every textbook rental you will be helping support Operation Smile.
