Day 10 of NaNoJouMo: When You Don't Have Much Time...

Hi again friends!  Today's page is another example of what to do when you only have a few minutes to spare, (which was my situation today).

I hate to waste paint; so when I am working on a project, and there ends up being leftover paint on my palette, I swipe it into a number of journals that I have, that are set aside specifically for that purpose.  Eventually, after I do enough paint slapping, it starts to look like something, and then I go in and finish the page.  It's fun and low pressure.

This is one of the journals I use for this purpose.  It's actually a book that I purchased when I was on a getaway with my girlfriends to Door County, Wisconsin.  We visited a super-inspiring indoor/outdoor art gallery, and they had this recipe book for sale:

I wasn't too interested in the recipes, but I loved the title, and the fact that there were beautiful pictures inside of the artwork in the gallery. So I brought it home; and now I'm using it as an art journal.

Anyhoo, I had this page almost finished, so today I just added the quote and a little doodling and I'm calling it done!  Here's how it turned out...

Day 10
"Walking Each Other Home"

If you don't have a "leftover paint swiping" journal, I encourage you to try it!  It's lots of fun, and it makes for some quick and easy journaling when you are short on time!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I appreciate you!

Fun to see what you can create with leftover paint! I don't smash it in a journal, but on the leftover pages I removed from my altered books. They are great for collaging (like the peacock transfer in the Mixed Emotions workshop)!
