Art Journal: Yes my darling, write your hopeful, beautiful and sentimental chronicles, always

Art Journal : Chronicals

Today I am sharing some inspiration for the September Take it Make it, challenge over at Craft Stamper. I've made a piece with my vintage ladies and pens clippings and started a new size journal, in my traveler's notebook. It says
"Yes my darling, write your hopeful, beautiful and sentimental chronicles, always."
and it has such a beautiful, fun whimsical feel to it. I made this page during my 30 days mini journaling project to fulfill my need for collaging. And it was good to have a bit of a break and do some journaling on a larger scale too :) Below you'll see a a few steps on how I created this spread.

Art Journal Chronicals

Started off with collaging neutral and "old style vintage" colored papers of which I have plenty of.

Then added gesso to knock back some color, adhered my focal images with gel medium and created shadows with faber castell pitt marker in grey.

I added some darker accents with distress crayons & created a border.

Some stamping for texture. Used a few of my favorites by Viva Las VegaStamps! and Staz-On inks.

And before I added the sentiment I added some splatters to bring it all together. 

Hope this inspired you to play along with the CS TIMI challenge for this month :) 

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend!
