So, here are this week's Get Messy art journal pages.
This week for me was all about soft and subtle and pretty. I had been playing around with different mixtures for doing calligraphy and hit upon this gold acrylic with pink Color Shine (from Heidi Swapp) combo, which resulted in this lovely rose gold colour. And of course I resonated with this quote...
I also recently found this doily stencil, which I sprayed with pink Color Shine to get a sparkly pretty design. As well, this combo of two flowery washi tapes has me smiling.
My second page started out with the flowery card that I had been hoarding for quite some time. I knew I didn't want to cover the pattern, so opted to adhere this poem off to the side. The poem comes from a vintage Book of Praise that I have in my old book collection.
To give the eye a starting point, I adhered some gold string along the top and then let a few gold stars fall...
At the bottom I added a bit of gold to balance out the gold at the top and to conceal some hidden journaling.
And here is a look at my two pages together...
I guess the connection between the two this week is flowers, gold and stars.
After a few weeks of participating in this challenge, I feel like I am fitting into a bit of a comfort zone and the ideas for pages are starting to come more easily.
So here's to more art journaling!
