Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.
I have an Art Journal page to share with you today. Actually, this is my very first Art Journal page so I must admit it's fairly simple but hopefully, as I get a bit more experienced at it, they will get better.
The background was created by just pressing a Distress Ink Pad in Faded Jeans onto my non-stick craft mat and then spraying with water and pressing the page onto that.
I didn't realize at the time that there was also some Walnut Stain left on the mat so, of course, that also ended up on the page. I really loved how it looked so I knew I had to do something with it. Well, it sat on the edge of my craft desk for weeks because I had no idea how I was going to decorate it. Until one day, I was looking through the few rolls of Washi Tape that I have and came across the birds and the music. So a couple of strips of each went onto the page ...
and then it sat for another week at least.
The next step was the texture which was done with TCW's Mini Grandma's Doily in the bottom left corner and along the right side.Then came the sprays ... Sugar Plum Fairy Glimmer Mist and two I made up myself from some Distress Ink mixed with water. One was Walnut Stain and the other was Mustard Seed. It turned out a bit dark so I dry brushed over it with a bit of Gesso.
Stamped the tea cup ring using a BoBunny texture stamp and found some Kaisercraft labels which were placed down the right hand side ...
and then the quote. This is one I've used before but I thought it was fitting because I'm sort of spreading my wings out into the world of Art Journalling!! I think?? Anyway, printed the quote onto some plain paper, cut out the strips and inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
The bottom left corner looked a bit empty so I filled it with a couple of white Prima flowers. Used Tea Dye Distress Ink on the flowers and around the edge of the page as well.
So, there it is ... my first Art Journal page but, hopefully, not my last. Hope you like it.
Thank you so much for visiting I really do appreciate you stopping by.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day and I would be so pleased if you left me a little comment. Thank you.
Take care and God bless.
