art journal

 Hello everyone - today I'm sharing another part of my art journal - I'm following along with the Art Journal == Tangents & Tactics over at daisy yellow.  And I'm just loving it ♥♥
Each week, there is a prompt, including video's to watch and be inspired by.  No #3 is to create an accordion album from manilla folders.  You can find the details at yellow daisy.


 So here's what I've come up with:

 I've used a Better Homes + Gardens magazine and cut out lots of little pictures that 'spoke' to me, of all things that I love!!  It's all about pink, tea & crochet - some of my favs at the moment ☺

 I've used an art medium to collage all the pictures on each little page - this also created a great 'workable' surface for other mediums I wanted to use.

 Each page is like a 'mini scrapbook' page - paper + embellishments.
 I used quite a bit of Heidi Swapp products = paper & sticker words.

Both sides of the accordion album are filled!!

Some area's around each picture have been accented with watercolour crayons - I've drawn in with the crayon and then added water to my finger to blend in the colours.  By using an art medium in the background, it allows for blending in of colour.  I love this effect and it's so simple to achieve.

I love my new stamp set that I got this week ====== HELLO - it's called a click and stamp set - you can click the stamps together to make a word, then simply stamp away.  I found this one at Viva Books ☺

Check out the Yellow Daisy blog if you want to join in - there's heaps of inspiration to get you all 'arty' and 'creative'

Thanks for coming by
Creating with love + happiness ♥

I really like this! It's such a neat idea & you're right, using mm on the bg adds that extra something:):))
