Hey everyone :)
Here we are at the end of the month, and of course it's busy isn't it? Lots of projects to share and just not enough time ;)
It's my turn today over at the Blue Fern Studios blog, and I will be sharing my projects over the next couple of days. Today I'm showing you my next art journal page, which again took me outside my comfort zone and forced me to try some new things in experimenting with the more "flat" look which goes a bit against my usual style. But I believe that we need to expand our interests, never stop learning, and just continue to grow any way we can.
"Live" Art Journal Page
I must admit, I HATED this when I first started working on it. Those circles were a nightmare, lol! But thankfully, watercolors are forgiving- and I just kept adding more water and working on them and they slowly became bearable ;)
I drew in the circles by hand before applying the watercolors. I then used a stamp sent to me by my sweet friend Patter Cross to accent the circles.
I love this quote- and I think it's a great reminder to us all not to get caught up in the daily grind and take the time to actually live our lives. And the photo of Wyatt that I included just makes me smile- I wish we could all be as happy and carefree in our lives as he is!
I've used a couple of the Blue Fern Studios Manor Hinges to accent my pages. They've been primed with gesso and stamped before being painted with some watercolors and embossed with some gold embossing enamel.
Thanks for coming over again today :)
See you back with my other two projects for Blue Fern tomorrow...see you then!
