The Little Book of Life

Art journaling is really enthralling and we’re having fun!

Today, again keeping in the the same inspirations as our previous page, we’ve created another mixed media journal page. The theme of friendship and circles  by the More Than Words Challenge. Our colours were inspired by Lindy’s Colour Challenge and Peek-a-boo’s Colour Inspiration Challenge.

This page involves a lot of layering. Here we’ve shown friendship between siblings that eternal. We’ve again incorporated circles with the theme to create this page.

For this page, our process was slightly different from the previous ones. We started off with choosing all are embellishments and layering elements. We chose two pieces of chipboard identical in shape and design but different in size. We then cut different sizes of circles on papers we had in our stash and picked some lace. We stuck to colours similar to our sprays that we were to use for this project. We took a piece of white doily and cut it into half. We then stamped images and sentiment from Peek-a-boo’s Magical Fairies stamp set and heat embossed it with Lindy’s  Hyacinth Blue Jade and Lindy’s Cosmic Pink Blue; after which we fussy cut them. We chose some other text pieces from our die cut stash apt for this project- Good times, having fun, etc. We chose two pictures and cut them out to fit in the chipboard frame. Once done, we started arranging the elements layering on top of the other. Once we were happy with our arrangement, we chose to work on the surrounding areas. We began with Peek-a-boo’s Bubbles stencil and crackle texture paste, adding texture predominantly in the seen areas. Once dry we began splashing our colours. Here we haven’t blended them with water, as we wanted the splash and splatter to be visible. We used Lindy’s Luscious Lime, Lindy’s Bachelor Button Blue, Lindy’s Luminous Lemon, Lindy’s Poppin Pink and a few drops of Lindy’s Tears on my pillow Tangerine sprays. Once happy with our colours we started stamping. We used Peek-a-boo’s Mandala stamp set and Prima’s Bubbles with Black Archival Ink and randomly stamped our page. Then we stuck all our decided elements as per our arrangement. We stuck some with glue and some with foam tape for added dimension. We stuck our fairies and stamped sentiment and added our text pieces. The then added blue, pink, green and yellow crystals in random places. We used Lindy’s Sidewalk Chalk and Lindy’s Blazing Black spray for a final splatter around our main layout clusters. We finished it off with a button from a Bo Bunny set we’ve had for long.

We loved our out come and hope you do too :)!
