I have been working in my art journal a bit, while I decide how I want to paint the flowers on the canvas I have been working on. After some paint and ink, I went through my stash of bits and pieces and found some tags I had saved. The pages don’t really have a theme, but they make me happy with how they turned out. Sometimes I just need to play without having a goal or direction in mind 🙂
The blue and green pages still need more doodles, and the lyrics in the sticker labels are from P!nk’s new song “Blow me (one last kiss) which I really like. The other two have been mostly test places for leftover paint or different techniques, and I really like how they look! I only have a few (about 20) pages left in my art journal. I know it sounds like a lot but they seem to fill up fast. (although, I do have a tendency to paint over pages a lot, so I technically have more than just the blank pages left…) I have already been thinking about how I want to make my next journal, what kind of cover, what kind of papers…. Making journals can get addicting very quickly lol! The one I have been using I made from found and recycled papers including paper bag, envelopes, mixed media paper, and some scrapbook papers that I stitched together with chipboard covers using the coptic stitch. I still need to decorate the cover but I’m saving that for last. I think I’m going to use some caulking and add some “touch me” texture, inspired by St. John’s Studio here and here and here…. so excited!!
I have a few handmade journals in my Etsy shop if you are looking for a cute new art or sketch journal 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!
