art journal every day in May -yay!
|* art journal in progress *|
This morning, I was right back working in my art journal!
I added watercolor crayons on top of the white paint on the right side,
then brushed and spritzed with water.
Here's a detail below, click on any photo for a larger version.
I have a tin of brightly colored paper flowers: Prima Calypso. The watercolor shapes I drew as a background suggested using these flowers to me. I put a few different colors down on the page and played with the placement until I was happy, then glued the flowers down with Tacky glue, just in the center so they stayed fluffy.
The photo at the very top of the post shows the next step: a dab of glue
in the center of each flower - with tiny micro beads poured on top.
I dusted the beads off when the glue was dry and retrieved what I could . . .
Then stamped a Magenta pattern stamp on the top of the left page & embossed it.
Added a quote stamp (LennaLines).
Decided to journal a bit about how I was feeling about this project!
all in a good days work! I am blessed.
Take care and thank you for visiting.
