Here is my Mission Inspiration art journal challenge page for March 2017. The prompt colours were green, yellow and brown and I chose the word 'Spring' from the choice of five given. There were a series of eight steps to follow.

Step 2: Add thin coat of a suggested colour. To start with I added a thin coat of Grass Green Reeves acrylic paint blended with Titanium White and some water. I wasn't very happy with the look, so went over the top with some watered down Medium Yellow allowing some of the green to show through.
Step 6: Make marks with a credit card. I used the shorter edge of an old phone top up card and Chopped Pesto Dylusions paint. First I added fine lines, but having caught one of the lines and dragged out the paint, I decided to go back and do the same with all of the lines. This created a pleasing texture to the background. I deliberately left a space to stamp the word Spring'.
Step 8: Add a frame or border. For this step I added some of the Medium Yellow, Reeves acrylic paint through the 6" x 6" Microbial stencil by TCW. It is very subtle, but if you look carefully at the picture of the finished page, you can just make it out.
