How about a Shamrock shake?

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.

 To create this page, I took the following steps:
Attach old book paper to journal page with gel medium.
When dry, apply a coat of gesso.
Sketch a drink cup with straw.
Color the page with Gelatos colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.
Journal next to the cup with PITT Artists pen BLACK.

Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents:  Gesso, Gel Medium,
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big White pen
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pens: BLACK
Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!

I didn't know McDonald's did Shamrock Shakes on St. Patty's Day. I'll have to tell my daughter. She loves mint ice cream. Wonderful page, love the soft and lovely colors, texture and wonderful journaling. Your shake is fab!
