Purple and yellow are opposites on the colour wheel — so they provide good contrast to each other on this page.
The background was made with two different shades of purple acrylic paint applied with a baby wipe. I purposely didn’t try to blend the two purples much, but left them streaky. I applied the floral sticker on the left side of the page, and the word “everyday” (torn from a magazine) on the right side. I sponged yellow acrylic paint through a stencil, overlapping the edges of the sticker to help blend it into the page. I added several postage stamps and some rubber stamping to complete the page. I often add a border to the edges of my pages, but this one looked fine without it.
If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I often apply paint or ink through stencils, but I haven’t yet discussed clean up. Distress inks (my favorite kind of ink pads) are reactive with water, so no matter how “dry” they are or how long I wait to clean them, they will always wash clean with water. So there’s no hurry; I wash them in the sink and they come clean. But clean up is trickier when I use acrylic paint, which washes off with water while it’s still wet, but once dry, it has permanent, plastic-like qualities to it that resist water. So anytime I use acrylic paint with stencils (as I did on this page), it’s important to immediately run to the sink and wash the paint off before it dries.
