Hello Lovelies! Happy Monday to you! I am so excited because I decided to start a new art journal and cannot wait to share with you. Have a look at my process:
Here is the completed layout:
I was inspired by the brush strokes on the wrapping paper, so after I gessoed the paper in the journal, I added some random brush strokes in similar colors as the background.
Then I layered paper, flower tags, and butterflies onto the background. I created one major focal point on the right hand side here:
And the second cluster at the top here. Once the glue dried I added a light layer of gesso on top:
Using my brush ben from Faber Castell I added my sentiment in my handwriting. In highsight, the name is written in a brush size that does not really match up scale-wise, but it is ok. It is only an art journal layout so perfection is not the point or the desired result! Just embrace what you have accomplished.
I added a simple date stamp, something I had been leaving off before, and this one is done. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite part of this layout is! And then go have a great productive and scrappy week. See you tomorrow!
