Art Journaling Friday

I made this spread this week. I worked a bit on it everyday. I started with the theme from the Greeting Farm HeArt Journaling… clouds. I started with a gessoed page and painted it with blue and white acrylic paint and I really didn’t like it so I lightly gessoed over it to tone it down. I decoupaged a few clouds that I cut out of dictionary pages. After that was all dry I mixed some blue, violet and green acrylic paint with water to make a wash and tilted my book up against a wall so the paint would drip down the page. Next I painted some bubble wrap and stamped it here and there around the page. I dipped a cup in paint and stamped that around the page as well, then I left it for a bit. The next day I came back and printed out Poppy from Tiddly Inks on copy paper using a laser printer. I made sure to print her large enough that she would fit the size of my 9″x12″ spread. I cut her out and decoupaged her down and painted her with acrylic paints. to finish up I stamped out the word dance and added hand written pieces of paper for the rest of the sentiment “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to DANCE in the rain.”… I just LOVE this sentiment. I added a few rain drops and edged the border with a NeoColor 2 black crayon.

I “think” that’s it! I really like how it turned out even though the picture doesn’t quite capture all of details. 🙂 Here’s a closeup of the painting…

The shiny stuff on the right is iridescent medium… it gives a little sparkle, I forgot to mention that up top. 🙂
