Kick Start Your Art Day 3

So far, so good! 
I'm back for day 3 of this fun art journal challenge,
organized by the cool chicks at Smeared and Smudged.
They give a daily prompt, and then you have 24 hours to complete a 
journal page and enter it to win daily prizes, and a killer rubber
grand prize at the end. Nice.

Today's prompt is
Easy Found Objects Background Technique.
Sounds easy enough, right?

I started my journal page using Dylusions Spray Inks.
I am loving how vivid the colors are, compared to my homemade stuff.
I never have a shortage of bubble wrap, so I figured it
was a good item to begin creating the background with.

Dylusions spray cap. Perfect for circles, bubbles, abstract dots.
I have a ton of these lying around. Most with paint on them. 
I can never seem to find the one with paint already on it, so I
grab another one.

I have also amassed a weird amount of air pillows used for shipping.
I rarely re-use them, but hate to throw them out, just in case....

So, I cut up one of the air pillows, smooshed it up,
dipped it into some Deco Art aqua glitter paint, and voila!
Instant art tool!

I pounced the smooshed plastic onto my page to create some
depth and added glittery goodness.

Lastly, I used a defunct credit card to smear some DA glittery orange paint
onto my page. 

 Once, the paint is dry, it gives a really nice, shiny sheen.
Oh, and some sparkle, too!  

I had this great digi image from Rick St. Dennis colored up to match.
I love these guys!

Added a witty sentiment from Ginger's House.
And some Orange Peel Stickles to match.

And here you have my journal page for Day 3!!

See ya tomorrow!
