Some more art journalling backgrounds

A quick snoop in town earlier and I found these lovely magnets reduced from £5 to £1 in Marks and Spencers. They're a tad too bright for anywhere in my house and I can't see they'd get used in the garden either (where they were meant for?) but I did think they might make good stencils, stamps and masks and I was right. I had a quick play earlier at using them as a mask on a background I'd already painted and this was the result which I was quite pleased with. I added a bit of fine glitter before the paint dried and they now shimmer slightly.

I've since used the bird one as a stamp and that works really well. I think tomorrow I'll doodle over the top of it using the magnet as a stencil and see what that looks like too. Watch out for that appearing on a complete AJ page soon. :)
