Dear Wonderful, Creative You:

This week I had the pleasure of spending some time with you on Facebook Live to create some fluid art journal pages. I wanted to show you how I used mark making and layered paint to create intuitive images on this fluid art journaling spread. I love this process because everything I’ve done here in this video is simple. I’ve used “x” shapes and lines that look like roots, as well as some more layers of messy paint.

Working intuitively with high flow acrylic paints is a soothing experience for me, and an adventurous one. I know it does the same for a lot of my students. Here’s the 5 minute speedy version and my commentary about the process. You’ll find the supply list below the video.

    I love this Amy! The layering and mark making is something I particularly enjoy doing too. Your tree/root piece was really interesting. Thanks for sharing.
