Daily Paper Prompt #7: Leftovers

Today's prompt is to use the leftover paint from an art journal page or painting to create abstract art, or photograph the leftovers or the paper that protects your table while you work.

This is a 3x5" index card with diluted heavy body acrylics that had dripped down a canvas, onto a plastic dropcloth, and then pressed onto the index card. The watery painty drips created a translucent effect.

You can grab the drips of another project, press your paper onto a wet journal page, clean your brush or brayer on a new page and use that for journal fodder on a future page. It's a never-ending circle of paint!
