I was so excited to see "Paint" as the theme for this week's Mixed Media Monday because I am currently obsessed with using acrylic paints to create backgrounds. These two pages were created for a round robin alphabetical journal spread. My letters were "G" and "H" and the theme of this particular book is "Art and Creativity". I wanted to portray "G" for "Grow" because I believe that growth is so important in art and creativity. There is just so much to learn and it is essential to push beyond what we perceive as our limits. "H" is for "History and Heritage" because it colours so much of what we create. We use vintage cabinet cards and collage images from antique photos. We design pieces around events in world history or from our own heritage.
