Art Journal: Amazing Diva

Amazing Diva

It's such an amazingly fun challenge to create pieces using project left overs aka 'tovers only. This piece was intended to be a postcard but I loved it so much I decided to adhere it to my art journal as I couldn't part with is. I used all sorts of scraps and left over pieces here but what started it off was the top. It's a color coded row of double ink sample swatches! I keep ink samples in trays and have it organized by what I have done already but for some reason I made an oopsie and made swatches of one row twice. Well of course it's too pretty to just throw out and if you see my scrap boxes you will know I have trouble to throw out anything!  I then looked for trims in the same color family to adhere to the page. Instead of vertically like I did with this journal page, I went with horizontal lines to see how that would go. And I absolutely love the outcome here! The Frida image is a left over print from this journal page and is a stamp from Lost Coast Designs - so are the words I used. I felt like I needed a POP of color and in my scraps I found that colored in whimsical seed pod from Viva Las VegaStamps! which I had used from this journal page almost a year ago! So very cathartic to use up all these scraps and seeing how all these elements come together as one :) The "frame" is just ripped out magazine pages from FLOW magazines. Yes, I have had a TON of them due to my 3 year subscription and those are all "free game" now - ripping stuff out feel SO GOOD! LOL! 

I would like to enter this journal page in the following challenges: 

'Flowers and Friends make life a garden' 
The green and seed pod reminds me of a garden... it could be Frida's garden :)

Wow, has it been a year I have been participating? 
I really loved this past year's themes esp. what's your super power and put a stamp on it
I feel like this journal page combines the two :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I love that you did a journal page - and did it with left-overs! The colours are all very striking and just what Frida herself would have used. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

  7. I love your use both of mixed media, collage, and using up "scraps". I personally hate getting rid of even the tiniest pieces of paper too! I love your work! Thank you for playing along with us at Watercooler Wednesday this week!

  8. Great design - and I love that you used your leftovers to create it! The bold colours are so fun and really stand out against the black journal page. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill
