I am so excited to have finished my first Art Journal pages! I have been pouring over the Art Journal YouTubes and have been so inspired and wanted to give it a try. I decided to make a journal for myself of the things I like to color so butterflies came first for me! Next I would love to devote a page or two to fairies!! Maybe, angels, some flowers, oh this is going to be addictive!!;)
I have a big thank you going out toVicky Papaioannou!! A link to her youtube page is here, if you wish to check out her videos on art journaling etc. - so inspirational and I was hooked and fascinated from day one with all she creates.
Now I have to learn what the technique is to take a good picture of your art journal book when it is not a card that stands in a little easel!! LOL So I hope you like this - something very different for me and I like the freedom I feel when I am just going with the flow! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you get a chance to just play and go with the flow too! Till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
Image and text is from Finnabair - "Don't Forget To Fly", my "Escape from Reality" stamp is from my stash. Stencil is from Prima. I used Gelatos on the pages for background, splashes of white gesso, distress crayons for shading of some butterflies. I drew a border around the pages with a Pitt Black Pen and the butterflies were colored with Brushos, stardust, and fussy cut.
I would like to enter these art journal pages for the following Mixed Media Challenges:
Month of April Creative Artiste Challenge #13 - use chipboard, stencil, or flowers - my background is the stencil I used to remove some of my Gelatos.
Month of April Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #23 "Dimension"
Month of April More Than Words Challenge - Word "Escape" & Mood Photo
