Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Abstract Art - Mix It Monthly
Abstract art! That is what Conny wants over on Mix It Monthly this month for our challenge art. Certainly a challenge for me! I have never done one. I've seen some that I really love but I didn't have a clue how to do one. Then I talked myself down by saying, "It's just a background for a journal page!" OK, I can handle it that way. I did want to do a journal page reflecting how happy I have felt recently anyway. So I just let the paints be happy and run and do their own thing. The darker blue things started out to be flowers but went their own way. The orange things are my fingerprints because I just though that it needed a pop of color. I put it beside the Butterfly Queen that I did in January and it's perfect and all those colors are so happy together!
