One of my other favorite sources of journaling and collage materials come from the local paint store. Paint manufacturers offer an ever increasing plethora of imaginative and stunningly beautiful array of booklets and paint chips displaying their paint colors and showing inventive ways to use them. I was out a couple days ago looking for a new color for our front door. The paint colors are absolutely luscious this season!
For the record, these are not one of the colors going on my front door, but I am looking for a new color to paint my living room. Hmmmmmmmm......
These particular booklets and chips are from Behr and Glidden. Aren't they absolutely luscious? I know it looks like I didn't show any restraint, but believe me, I did!
A page from Glidden's booklet showing samples of every color family. It's a calming, inspirational page.
Journaling material is everywhere! whether used directly on your journal page as part of collage, or whether used as an inspiration for subject matter, these beautiful art sources that often get thrown into the garbage can be a useful tool in your creativity. Take a good look at your junk mail before you toss it into the trash. It could be part of your next spread. Come back soon to see how I've used some of my "junk".
