Mixed Media Art Journal 2017

Obviously you've been able to find my Blog...yay!  I've been wanting a "Blog" change for a while and today I finally got around to giving it a make-over, title and all.  I think the new title and background better reflects my interests and life as it is at the moment.

So going with that theme, I finally sat down to get messy and created something "just because". I think it's been about 4 or 5 months since I played around in my Art Journal. I forgot how therapeutic it is. This inspiration comes from the very talented and super lovely Marta Lapkowska.

A couple of closies to begin with. A bit of metal and texture added.

I added some serviette paper and book paper to the background after I gessoed it.

And here is the double page spread. As usual it turned out nothing like I had in my head when I started, but that's okay, I just went with it to see where it would end up :D

This is the last page in this Journal, so I'm looking forward to starting a new one to coincide with a new year (besides this one is now slightly fat!).

Products used:
Gesso, texture paste, Colour Blast colour shimmer dust - Sunflower, Kaiser Mist - Coffee, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Apricot Nectar, Prima Colour Bloom - Deep Teal, Black Archival Ink, Background stamps, word stamps, stencil.

Thanks for looking today!  xx
