Despite it still being really busy at home, I actually managed to find some proper me time today. I have been itching to have a go at some art journalling but I knew it wasn't really the kind of thing that was going to take 5 minutes and I needed time to think about what I wanted to do.
I started with some Anna Marie papers called Blissful Cotton and gave each side a wash of white Gesso. Then it was a case of collaging some papers, trying to create balance on each side as I did it.
The lovely butterfly is by Stampotique, a real beauty. I then added some Lindy's inks and Prima Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Artisan Powder in Mesdames Merlot, a really rich magenta powder which I mixed with water to create a wash.
My fave product is the new Glitter Kiss in Pink Sapphire which I painted onto the butterfly wings.
Then it was just a case of splashing white Dylusion ink over both sides.The sentiment is by Indigo Blu called "Discover Your Passion".
I've put my art journal pages in the scrapbook/journal I got from Hobbycraft. I really enjoyed the whole process and hope to add many more pages in the future. I will be entering my art journal creation into this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Monday Challenge called "Little Critters".
See you soon x
