I don't believe I'm
either, but I sure am having fun playing around with my new art journal...
the first page in my Strathmore 5.5" x 8.5" mixed media...
I did a background
of Mustard Seed, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China Distress Ink. Did some ghosting with a Crafters Workshop Chunk Chevron stencil and water then a little stamping. The banner and flowers are made from Glitz Vintage Blue 6" x 6" paper pad. I doodled around on the stems, leaves and flowers with a Faber-Castell S Pitt pen and shaded with the Chipped Sapphire. The flowers were cut with Alterations Tattered Florals and shaped with the handle of a small paint brush. The flower centers are colored with Mustard Seed Stickles. The text is from Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Text Art sticker sheet and edged with the Pitt pen. The rhinestones are TPC Studio.
The doodling at the
bottom was done on a strip of paper and glued onto the page. I actually stamped it first with Unity She Art Doodles then went over it all with my Pitt pen. I filled in with a white Gelly Roll pen... can't seem to leave things as is... just have to keep on playing! Actually, as I'm looking at it, I think I'll go back and do some shading on the leaves.
We'll be leaving for our
trip to Florida soon, so I won't be around much the next couple of weeks. I had planned on getting ahead with projects and scheduling them, but with a large family that's not always possible. I will try to keep in touch, though.
