It was looking like my intentions to begin creating an art journal were going out the window due to lack of time, but I was still purchasing supplies here and there. Always the case, right? ;)
For March I've been participating in the Fat Mum Slim photo a day challenge and it wound up being a very timely decision. It's giving me material for my Details mini book, getting me back to practicing my photography, and made me sit down and make this page.
My background began with putting droplets of Dylusions Ink Spray on watercolor paper and then pushing it around with a water brush. Then I added some small mist droplets in yellow and black and let it all dry.
Being on an image transfer kick due to the mini book class I'm taking, I wanted to try text transfer with Mod Podge. It wasn't quite a success, but I still like the effect I was left with. I'm not sure what the problem was as I've since tried it with different book pages as well as different paper and the results were the same, which was not text transfer. Anywho.
I added some ink with stencils and adhered my hand cut letters. Feeling like it needed one last touch, I placed a few enamel dots and then called it done. Even though I haven't been focusing on my art journal, I hope to slowly grow it over time. What helps you make time for being creative?
