Hi all, been painting in my Moleskine art journal. Today I went blue yep grabbed all the shades of blue and went tiling. Using the mini tile stencil. I first painted three quarters of the page in DecoArt Americana Blue Mist then I did the stenciling in Turquoise blue and Ocean Blue. Just by moving the stencil around it gave it a kind of as my hubby said a Sci fi look.  I just used all the blues on the left side in stripes and added some white. Then I got a credit card and made lines with the Black and White DecoArt Media Gesso. Rubbing the card to the side and pulling the paint to smear it. I added the quote. Courage is found from daring to begin. I think I need to make a bigger one of these so don't be surprised in the future, if you see it on a canvas. 

Popping this over at Paint Party Friday and at 
Balzer Design's Art Journal Every Day.

Have a great day 
Sandy :)
