MY YEAR 2017 JOURNAL

I've been playing catch up with the April prompts for the facebook group My Year 2017. The prompt for this month is Crayons, Pencils and Markers. I had been picking out some inspirational artists to also learn more about during my months but after having a not so good health start to the month, I ended up finding inspiration from the teachers in the group.

My introductory page was a rather simple layout where I used paint markers, and some watercolour pencils which was quite appropriate for this month.The sticker labels were already on the page from my intial start to my journal. A quick video of the process is below...







My next page was from inspiration I found from Cindy Utter. Cindy put out a challenge awhile ago where she said to use your colouring books to make a page. So after I coloured in a few flowers and cut the out. I used a matt gel medium to collage them onto my journal page.
This was fun and the page turned out lovely.
The process can be seen in the video below...



Below is the still picture...



My final catch up layout was inspired by Jeri Bellini another one of the teachers in the facebook group. This was a fun experiment where I melted crayons, something which I had been wanting to do for such a long time. I did leave a fair bit of space on this layout so I can fill it in later with some journaling (writing). Process video is below.


and this is a picture before I added my journalling. I liked leaving the melted crayons on the card and placing it in a clear plastic bag. It ended up roughly the size of an ATC, which gave me more inspiration to actually make some ATC's out of this method.

Thanks very much for dropping by and Have a good day!

Art Journal Page

I have been making quite a few crafty things in the past couple of weeks so I thought it was time to get some paint on my fingers again. This is where I made an art journal page and using a decorated envelope that was sent to me and putting layers after layer on the pages to get an effect I was happy with. I cut the envelope up in to a couple of flowers. Hope you enjoy!




Here are a couple of pictures of the final layout.









Have a Great Day!
