May Mood Board Challenge Inspiration by Tanyalee Kahler

Hi Soul Sisters, it's Tanyalee here with some inspiration for the monthly art challenge.


Here is this month's mood board in case you missed it. I took inspiration from the prompt and decided to use up some old alphas I had in my stash. 


To make this spread I started with a page from my junk journal that I had used as a 'use it up' journal - it's a great way to use up leftover paint from projects without wasting it. Anyway, the page had some paint on in already. 

I pulled out the old alphas I had and placed them randomly on the bottom of the pages.


I then cover it all with a layer of gesso but left the paint and background peek through just a little bit. Next, I added some mica powder and spritzed it with water to make it run across the page. I felt it needed some extra shimmer and grunge so I used some wax from Finnabair and blended that into the edges and over the textured alphas.

As the final step, I pulled out my acrylic ink and drew my trademark illustrations - leaves - and wrote some journaling. And of course, I finished it all off with some ink splatters.


I hope you enjoyed this simple inspiration spread. and don't forget you can submit your art from this mood board too, just read the info below and submit!
