Challenge 5 - the Americas

I almost let this weeks ITAC challenge go by without an entry. I found a previous background page in my journal that sorta fit the green portion of the challenge  (green is just not a color I use often) and took out a pipette and some India ink and started playing. 

I always try to "let go" when pipette painting, I mean really, it's a must-have mindset when painting this way. Especially when your surface is covered with ColourArtes Silks Acrylic Glazes which you can see adds a lot of glossy shimmer. The ink really slides around and it's pretty much an 
"It is what it is" moment
....lightbulb moment!!!!
I have a Rubbermoon stamp that says just that!
I love it when I am thinking in tune with my stamps!
 Kismet!

Then I thought I really wasn't into adding a currency element until I remembered a coin from Gwen's Going Global Turkmen Jewelry Parts which I thought would be a cool element to hang off the journal.






  • Shades of green👍
  • Something transparent or sharp, like ice
  • A large format feature, XXL size
  • An element suggestive of money and currency👍
  • One or more elements inspired by music and/or Samba👍
  • Decorations made of feathers, metal, leather…
