My Favourite Things Wild About You Art Journal
Hi it’s Kathy here and I have something other than a card to share with you today, a My Favourite Things Wild About You Art Journal 🙂
For Christmas, I bought myself and my girls Art Journals and we’ve had lots of fun creating together.
I must admit I’ve only done 2 pages so far but I’ve really enjoyed it.
The first was purely just experimenting with how paints and pens etc looked on the page.
Then I created this one and I was really happy with how it turned out 🙂
Firstly, I used Dylusions Paint and some Tim Holtz stencils to create a fun background.
I decided to do blocks of 3 different colours and then used an alphabet stencil over the top in the same colour paint. I love this effect with Dylusions Paints! The yellow didn’t stand out as much as the other colours though and so I went over it with distress ink instead.
I also added some white and black dylusions paint to the background through some circle and arrow stencils.
I am hoping to use favourite quotes, lyrics and sentiments that mean something to me in my art journal. And I love this sentiment from the MFT Wild About You set and decided to use it with the animals from the set too.
I stamped and coloured the animals with Copics to match the colours of the paint and cut them out.
I then stamped this sentiment and used the Love You Die-namic from MFT with it as well.
I glued the elements down flat but they look as if they have a lot of depth and dimension because I drew around them with a charcoal pencil.
I then drew a border around my page added a few details with a white gel pen and finally called it done 🙂
I love that I can use my stamps and dies and other crafty supplies in my journal.
While it’s great making and sending cards to people, this is artwork that I actually get to keep.
And it doesn’t have to be perfect, I can experiment and make mistakes and that’s okay.
This My Favourite Things Wild About You Art Journal is about me and is for me 🙂
I really recommend giving art journalling a try if you haven’t already 🙂
