I have been looking forward to getting started on an Art Journal for a while, but Summers are always busy with less time for creativity. I was looking at several talented bloggers' Art Journal pages this week which inspired me to get started. I had to keep telling myself that I just need to "Do" and "Don't think'. No planning & just play. It is fun but I'm still learning and looking forward to spending more time with it.
I used Artistic Expressions Stamps from Chocolate Baroque and one of Design by Ryn's fabulous Texture stamps Patio Stone CM-T6 . The Patio Stone design complimented one of the templates that I used. I chose the expression 'Listen to the whispers of your Heart' & 'Art' as I feel my heart gets excited when I see beautiful creations.
Eileen, who also Designs for Ryn, created a gorgeous tag with Ryn's Circle Cluster stamp. If you get a chance, please check out her design here at Eileen's Crafty Zone.
I used several templates with white Acrylic paint, sprayed Dylusions Inks and stamped with Distress Ink. I love to doodle, so I added the flowers in the centre & painted with a Tombow & outlined with a white Neocolor Crayon.
I've been eyeing the Neocolor Crayons at a local art shop, but wasn't sure if I 'needed' them so I just picked up a white one. I realize now that they are wonderful to work with & a colourful set are now on my wish list !
