I’ve created an art journal page and tried to capture the many shades in this wonderful color with a garden scene of Purple Cone Flowers and a little purple birdie.  And a message to always Count Your blessings.

I started off with a vintage music sheet that I had done a mono print on with my Gelli Print plate and added layers of with stencils and DecoArt Media Line fluid acrylics. I also used a couple of my favorite tools for backgrounds, a detergent cap and a small plastic tube.  They make great circles with the acrylic paint.

I continued to create more background using Paper Wings Productions stamps of writing scripts, flowers and numbers.

I also created a You Tube video showing you some of my creative process.
