It's my turn on the blog again today and I have an art journal page to share with you.
I have used the Distressed Harlequin Background pieces that I had left over from my last project.
This page was made with a piece of pattern paper by Prima called 'love letter' from the Pastiche collection. I added some 'Old paper' Distress Ink around the edges and collages pieces of an old envelope on it. I bought this in an antique shop and it has a letter too. For now I just used the envelope with the address on it. Next I added some gesso where the chipboard was going to be and stamped the background randomly for more interest. I then added the stitch lines around the edges with a black marker.
I added my altered chipboard ( I have made a YouTube tutorial of how I did this; link below) and some other bits and pieces like cambric and some lace flowers and stuck my photo on top. Lastly I added the sentiment.
Today I'd like to share my newest art journal page. This small piece of mixed media is my daily reminder to not be complacent, to not limit myself to what I know and am comfortable with, but to look further afield, to be open minded, flexible to fully explore life.
I used two different stencil: Damask & Dahlia and some different chipboards.
