DLP Journal Prompt: Week 9

Standard

I’m currently playing catch-up with online journal prompts from Art to the 5th Academy for the Documented Life Project (2015). This is week 9.

Art Challenge: Using at least five layers
Journal Prompt: “Give Me a High Five”

Layers included collage, acrylic paints, intense ink pencils, stamps, stencils, paint splatters, doodles, calligraphy ink (gold – too bad it doesn’t show up in the pic; it’s really sparkly!).
