Blue & Orange Art Journal Background

Another journal page follow along! Have fun with it. I love blue/green and orange and rusty kinda looking art. Reminds me of old rusty chevy trucks. I started with a journal page I had previously printed with Saran Wrap and blue acrylic paint. That tutorial is here Acrylic Art Journal Page. These are Martha Stewart watercolor gels and Dr. PH Martin concentrated watercolors but you can use whatever you like. Keep in mind these colors are complementary, opposite on the color wheel, so if you mix a lot they get muddy. A little mud is cool, a lot of mud is yucky and boring. I also used a sponge, paper towel and some random paintbrushes. I do like the bristle brush best though. Have fun! Paint Happy:)
