Magical Art Journal ...

Hey creative peeps … Natalie here… popping in today with a short post 
showing you something cool!!!

I’m one of those people who will find a million other things to do when deadlines are looming… I work best under pressure lol. BUT when I am “procrastinating” … I open my Art Journal, this is my happy space, where I get ‘warmed up’ I guess.
I love using paint in my Journal so decided to make my own using White Acrylic Paint and the NEW Magical Shakers…  It was super easy and I loved the finish!

As soon as I got my new Shakers, I updated my swatch book … this is the perfect way to see exactly how the colors work and react with water.

 Start by mixing White Paint and a sprinkle of the Magical Shakers
… mix well

and go for it!

I created the background by randomly adding Magical Shakers mixed with paint,
and spreading the color with a palette knife.

I mixed some Black Forest Black with Clear Gesso to get some black splatter

This was so much fun and the results are pretty cool!
