Art Journal January Day 9

Day 9 of January Art Journaling.
Today's prompt was a really cool one- to use masking tape in your pages.
I started off with a background of yellow ocher and burnt sienna acrylic paint, then a light coat of gesso over the top.
I added the masking tape in a criss-cross pattern, then I brushed on a light blue acrylic paint.
The funnest part was to stamp some masking tape with StazOn inks and then cut it up in little strips to make flower petals.
Stamped some flowers with my StazOn pads.
Then I broke out my watercolor crayons.
I colored all the flowers, wrote the word "bloom" and colored in the bee.
Bloom is one of those words that is going to help me to "Shine" this year, I am starting small with a little blooming. :)
