I have not shared pages from my art journal in a while, that is because I didn't have any inspiration to make any pages. But that all changed after visiting the ART Specially event in Nijkerk on April 9th... like every year, it was a breath of creative air! So the days after I was inspired to create some more pages in my art journal.
These are the pages I did the days after the show.
The Dream Big marbled and rubber stamped page, I did a while back for a mail art project and used it as a tip-in for the journal. The Cityscape stamp is from Lost Coast Designs, I have used the large version. A tip-in is a good way to start again, for me anyway, it gives a nice prompt for the next few pages. I had so many ideas and I just started to work with color on the pages (direct to the paper) to see what would come of it.
The items I used to color the page are distress stains, dylusions sprays and glimmer chalk mist. I used the silhouette flower stamps from joy crafts and Lost Coast Designs dictionary word "grow" - alphabet stamps used are from Image tree. Stamped with Staz-on stone grey and hydrangea blue and Brilliant Lavender on front to make it pop.
The sentiment "plant ideas and watch them grow" rings true - I have so many ideas for fun creative stuff, I just need to set away some time to work at them. So hopefully once I just plant these ideas onto my journal pages, I will be able to share more with you here :)
Have a wonderful creative weekend!
Thank you for stopping by!
