Art Journal Cover Mixed Media

Hello my loves! I can finally share the last of my art journal! The cover!
I kept it pretty simple! It's quite small of course, and I just wanted the paint to 
be front stage on this since it would be displayed at the Summer Mixed Media
Show for Prima. I really hope you liked my journal! Next time I will have more 
of it filmed and on a larger scale! 

I tried some new techniques on here, including more work with laces and fabric. 
I LOVE using it now! And for the spine i die cut a ton of leaves, stiffened them 
with matte gel, and adhered them in a layered look kind of like scales. Not sure if
it was what i had in mind, but like i said, experimenting is half the fun! 
I did a lot of dabbing the paint, then spritzing with water and letting it "do it's thing."
Trying to let go of control! 
Again all products will be at the bottom for you to nab if you don't have them, 
or want to try any! Hugs and thank you so much for viewing :)

Art Journal Page "Future Dreams"

Hello blogging friends :) back to share my last page in my tiny album! Tomorrow will be the cover! Which i did last! yayyy! This has truly been super fun, and 
a great way to try new techniques, use up scraps, and learn most importantly! 
next time i promise to film more of the process! 
So this is my last page!

You can see the peekaboo to the other page. I didn't add any paper this time, except the quote!
I just did stamping! Lots of stamping and coloring with my paints and some inks,
but mostly the new Art Alchemy paints which were so FUN!
i just used a waterbrush to color the circles then spritzed with water to get more of 
a watercolor/painterly/messy look lol.  
I hope you like it! Hugs!

Art Journal Page "stars" with Peekaboo cut out

Hello my loves! I only have 2 more inside pages to share, then i can show the cover
to my little tiny album art journal. It has been so fun! i hope you like this page! This one and the 
last one are "sisters" i suppose lol, you can see through to one side from each page. 
but they both use different color schemes and compositions. This page is my fave colors. 
I am always a blue and brown lover! For some reason! I used a circle die to cut out a 
peek a boo to see through.  Used lots of left over bits of die cuts on my desk!
more collaged scraps! I am loving how art journaling helps me tidy up my area lol! 
And it all seems like it was meant to be! I did add some metals of course and some
stamped fussy cut images. I hope you like it!
