Art Journal with Blended Water Color Technique, Take 2

Here’s another page made with Tim Holtz’s blended water color technique.  You can see the first one here.

It’s a lot more white space than I’m comfortable with so it was an exercise to stop and not add more color.  Do you find yourself challenged with white space?

  1. Love this technique, Marjie! The colors are wonderful – I like the colors and the white space!

  2. Oh definitely yes, white space is for filling – isn’t it? I would love to make CAS cards but it never turns out that way. I do love the colours you have used for this piece and your ‘white spaces’ are very cleverly surrounded by lovely colour… x

  3. I’m also challenged when it comes to white space. I always feel all that white space is just more room for more color, lol! I’m always glad to hear that others have the same problem.

  4. I love these drippy pages. xox

  5. Sooooooooooo gorgeous! LOVING the colors!!!!!!!!!!!!
