In progress: a background

I started this page a while ago with watercolors, color wash & glimmer mist.  It ended up really dark but yesterday I added some opaque watercolors, spritzed the page with water, tossed a bit of salt on & blotted with a paper towel before letting it dry a bit.  Where it had been heavy +dark blues & purple, it's more colorful & definitely lighter.

Welcome to my new blog!  I've decided to open up this new one to share my more artsy side and to participate in a few challenges. 

I'm making a commitment to art journal (almost) every day and to participating in "Art Journal Every Day."  It looks like it will be a lot of fun (& maybe a bit of the kick in the butt that I need to work on things...more, well ...daily ;-) ).  I'm thinking 10 minutes each

I'm also planning to participate in The Sketchbook Challenge
