Everyone who is wondering what an art journal is or knows it and has not yet started maintaining, should take the leap soon!
It’s is so much fun! Its a way of expressing yourself, your moods, emotions, aspirations, and so much more through art. It’s your own book and you can do whatever you want to, no restrictions! Also, you can decide your technique and do multiple things.
Today we created a journal page around the theme of friendship and circles inspired by the More Than Words Challenge. Our colour were inspired by Lindy’s Colour Challenge and Peek-a-boo’s Colour Inspiration Challenge.
We started of using Peek-a-boo’s leafy delight stencil and Wild Honey Distress Ink. Next Using Peek-a-boo’s Humming Blossom Stamp set, we stamped the flowers on the left side of our page and stamped them on some separate white cardstock as well. We also stamped the birds and a few flowers and butterflies from Altenew’s Wild Hibiscus Stamp set. Our sentiment is from Altenew’s Painted Inspiration Set which truly holds the essence of good friends. To our page, we added some crackle texture paste using Peek-a-boo’s bubbles stencil at random spots. Once dry, we sprayed Lindy’s Luscious Lime, Lindy’s Bachelor Button Blue, Lindy’s Luminous Lemon, Lindy’s Poppin Pink and Lindy’s Tears on my pillow Tangerine sprays. and blended them with water. While adding colour, we made sure we avoided the sides of the page in order to highlight our leaf pattern. We coloured our stamped images on the cardstock with watercolours and Pitt Markers and fussy cut them. Next, we assembled and stuck them all with foam tape on our page . We arranged the flowers in a way that our background flowers show at places. On the right side of the page, we added doily and some coloured circles texture around are sentiment. We then stamped using Kaisercraft’s Tic-Tock stamp and Prima’s Bubbles stamp and black archival Ink randomly.
This page truly gave us happiness and uplifted our spirit. We’ve used birds, butterflies and nature to show friendship.
Hope you’re inspired :)!
