Anyway, today I wanted to share with you my favorite art journal page thus far ... and I really do love it! I hope you will too! Here goes ...
So, what do you think? It was 'inspired' by one I found on Pinterest, and I think it was by Christy Tomlinson, but I've seen so many art journal pages lately that I couldn't begin to tell you for sure! My favorite part of the page are the blue flowers on the birdhouse pole. They are circles (imperfect circles) that I cut from one of my gelli plate prints, then cut into a spiral. I adhered them to the page using Mod Podge, then curled up the spirals to give them some dimension. Here's a close up view for you ...
Another favorite part are some elements I made by cutting out bits from a painted over paper doily that I had been using for making gelli plate prints. One is at the top of the birdhouse ... I wanted it to look as if it was a star glowing to show the birds the way home ...
I painted it over and over with different colors from yellow to pink to red to gold, and feel like I got the 'glow' I was looking for. And the other bits I made from the doily are the flowers at the bottom of the fence ...
The flowers were actually around the center of the doily, so I painted them pink (with my fingers) and glued them to the page with Mod Podge. They were still wet when I took this picture, and look much better once they dried.
I got hubby to make a picture of me ... in my apron ... with this latest page. He thought I was crazy, but after almost 29 years together, he should KNOW that already! :)
So that's my most recent art journal page ... thanks so much for stopping by today, and I'm sure I will be back with another page (or something) to share very soon. Blessings,
