Daily Paper Prompt #57: One Word Journal Page

{This is my 12 yr old daughter's art journal page - see another just like it}

Create an art journal page focused on ONE WORD or a very, very short phrase {just a few words}. First, create a background in any way you wish. Messy paints, squiggled doodles in orange sharpie, watercolor stripes, collage... your pick. The word or short phrase is the focal point of the entire page. If you want to write/journal on top of the background, the word can be the launching point. 

Then dip a brush in black fluid acrylic paint, craft acrylic paint or dark india ink and paint your word or phrase. If you've never painted words, it's really the same as writing, but with a brush. Another option is to use a black Sharpie marker or Pitt brush pen. Wait until the painted word is completely dry {an hour or two later} and outline it with metallic paint marker, with white gellyroll, or white colored pencil. If you have a thin brush, you can outline this word with a lighter color of paint.

There's an index to all of the Daily Paper Prompts.
