One of the things on my bucket list is to dabble in Art Journaling.....thanks to the inspiration of the internet...aka Pintrest, You Tube and Blogger Marjie Kemper who is the Art Journal Queen.......
So, I started out with red and white acrylic paint and spread it across the page with a credit card. I was at a crafty friends home, and she had some stencils and some modeling paste, so I used one of Harriets. It is called Poppies by Crafters Workshop. After the paste dries, I painted the Poppies and leaves with Smoosh and Creative Inspirations Paints. The word Be True to You was painted in Gold CI paint.
I then used a variety of products- Dylusions, more acrylic paint (Gold, White and Black). I used bubble wrap, the top of the paint cap, scrapbook paper with cut out hearts in swirls, a credit card. I used tissue paper for the music and the edge strips. The black around the border is done with a black Gelato.
Being true to me is about creating, so I took black cardstock and cut out the word CREATE with a Cuttlebug Alphabet set.
Here is a glance at a different angle- the dragonflies are done through a stencil as well (I think it is by Stencil Girl- not sure though). I also outlined the flowers with black pen, then Gold Creative Inspirations Paint.
This was a blast! It is my 2nd attempt at Art Journaling........
