Michelle Ward’s latest GPP Street Team Crusade is Portion Control – What does she mean by Portion Control?
“What do I mean by Portion Control? I believe that part of something is more interesting than the whole. It creates a sense of mystery, an engagement of the viewer to try to figure out what they are looking at.”
I was a few days behind on my a prompt a day art journal pages that I am doing with Kelly Kilmer. So this evening, I thought I would kill two birds with one stone.
After preping the page with acrylic paints – I used my large alphabet stencil to stencil some letters onto the page. Some are complete, some are light and some are dark.
With collage elements added.
Complete with journaling.

Meagn – I love all three versions of this page! Bravo for getting two things done at once 🙂 Thanks for sharing your *portion control* with the street team.
I really like this – I’m fascinated with alphabets and this just looks so mysterious. Great job!
Love the layers that you did and the colors just “pull” ones eyes into the piece! Great job….xo…deb
I have an alphabet fixation too (grin) and it really looks good half hidden back there.
This is wonderful. I too try to get as much mileage out of a piece as I can. Somehow I find it very satisfing. I do like how the alphabet is somewhat hidden. It really does add mystery.
I really like the white writing over the dark letters – great page.
ooh, this is cool journaling stuff, too! I like the letters, it speaks to journaling and provides background. Thanks for sharing!
Love the layers and all of the texture! the white really makes the other elements pop!! Great job!!
Love how the faded letters look behind your journaling! 🙂
Great page, Megan! I’m a few days … at least … behind in APAD. My guy’s working on our main computer, which shares my “art” desk. *sigh* Oh well…
Very nice! I especially like the look of your handwriting over the large alphabet, it creates such yummy layering.
Thanks for sharing!
Have a great hair day! Becci
The layering effect is terrific, you really want to see what’s behind the white words.
