April Art Journal Exchange: Paint, Texture & Aquatic Inspiration

I'm really glad I joined in on the art journal exchange for 2014. At the very least it forces me to do SOMETHING creative each month, even if it is just this two-page spread. In April's entry, the owner of the art journal made her own book using painted papers. I chose two pages that spoke to me is some way and added more paint, used some texture tools (like paint scrapers and bath poofs -- yes, I LOVE using poofs to get texture), envisioned sea creatures, made the drawings, and voila --- a work of art!
