I'm sharing another Art Journal Page that I created using the Fall colours as an inspiration. I'm still learning and it's a busy page for me, but it's about Fall ! I added Sunflowers as I thought their bright colours co-ordinated with the background. We used to grow them in our previous garden and loved to watch Blue Jays hanging onto them while eating the seeds in the late summer/early Fall.
-Miraculous Art (Miranda) available at Inkerbell Stamps, Netherlands - Zonnegroet set (Large Sunflower & leaves).
-Impression Obsession - H8466 Hydrangea Leaf - large leaf in background
-Designs by Ryn- Forest Floor 1 CM-F12 & Mulberry Leaf CM-F8 (used in background)
-Chocolate Baroque- Artistic Impressions (perfect size for Art Journals)
- Crafters Market- Mini Chicken Wire & Ranger/Dylusions - Luscious Leaves
I started by adding Distress Inks with an Acrylic Block (sprayed with water) & Dylusions Inks on the background. I added texture in layers using Acrylic paints & Distress Inks with the templates. I stamped the leaf images with Distress Inks. After adding DI to the large leaf, I sprayed a little water before stamping. I drew a few flowers with a white gel pen.
The Sunflower was embossed with black and coloured with Distress Inks and Markers. I thought that 'Gratitude & Beauty' were a good choice of expression for Thanksgiving weekend.
And here are a few photos of the beautiful Fall scenery around the country side.
Well that's all for this evening.
Thanks for your visit and have a great day !
