I love working with acrylic paint. I like how once it dries it doesn't move or change. You can paint over it without making mud. It is easy to clean up and even inexpensive craft paint works really well in art journals.
This birds are from a Sale-abration set by Stampin Up. I stamped them on an old encyclopedia page. They are painted with craft paint.
The background is pieces torn pieces of encyclopedia paper which are also painted with craft paint. The leaves and flowers are leftover pieces of a paper napkin that I used in another project. I love how the words show through the napkin.
It does my heart good when I realize I've made a page with mostly recycled items. Do you recycle in your art work?
