Hi everyone! I hope where ever you are today you are warm and dry. I know that many parts of the country are experiencing crazy weather. Here we are having record lows at night and are expecting tons of rain. If only the cold rainy days allowed me more time to play....sigh
I have been finding little bits of time here and there to play and one of my new favorite things to play with is mixed media. I have made a few "She Art" girls, which are tons of fun...but sometimes I just don't have the time to commit to a canvas. That is why I decided to start an art journal as a fun place to play with techniques and textures. I think I will use it as a place to make pretty things, practice my sketching and maybe even get things off my chest. (warning...this is gonna get long, hee hee).
I began with a simple watercolor notebook I picked up at Michaels with my coupon. I covered it with some scraps of older Prima watercolor papers that I colored with my Glimmer Mists and other Prima paper scraps. I added bits of fussy cut butterflies, tons of rub ons, and a few pieces of chipboard. Inks and paints blended it all together. My Claudine Helmuth multi-medium keeps it all together.
Goosebumps Texture Spray from Tsukineko. On the cover I used it as a resist. This was so fun, and easy.
Stay warm and safe.
