Art Journal Play ~ Flower Art

Hi there! Happy Saturday, friends! I don't know about you, but a full week after a couple short weeks is ROUGH, and I am so thankful for a weekend:)

I wanted to share my latest art journal page today! I had fun just creating for the sake of my sanity. I worked on this page on and off for a couple days and really love where it ended up!

This is a page I created in my large Dylusions journal! I have a couple of these journals going, one for fun (this page) and another for the Documented Life Project! 

For this page, I started by gesso'ing the whole page and letting it dry. Next, I collaged my latest Blick Art Supplies invoice on the background. I recently got this amazing package in the mail and was so inspired, I wanted to include my invoice on this page, lol! That's what I love about art journaling, I can do it if I want to!

I did some loopy journaling on these drips created with some purple Golden fluid arylic paint. I loved how these drips created the perfect journaling space, ala Dina Wakley!

The flower was created with a Balzer Designs stencil and I drew the stem and leaves :)

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fantastic weekend!!!

I totally agree about the long week being a killer after short weeks. Adjusting the old time clock was NOT fun LOL! Biiiiig sleep in this morning to compensate/catch up LOL. LOVE the page!

I had to comment again on this amazing piece of art, Schmoopy…so GORGEOUS! I still remember the Verve cards you made last year that made me say,"I need to start Mixed Media!" I love everything about this AND you ;)
