Hello my lovelies,
Hope you're all okay, and have something fun planned for the weekend. I'm knee deep in bags of stuff since we're starting the kids' bedroom reno this weekend (insert excited squeal here). But I just had to pop in to show you my latest art journal page. I'm so happy to be back journaling it is unreal! It's my bliss, I tell ya.
I started this page back in December (TWO LONG MONTHS ago), and only finished it this morning.
I started by writing my younger self (yep, that's me up there) a letter in pencil, then doodled on top, colouring in the doodles with markers as I went. When that was done, I added some pink tissue paper circles and glitter paint I found in Aoife's craft stash (sssh!). Next, I put down another layer of tissue paper (this time torn strips in yellow, orange and red), stamped some pink stars in batches over it, and through a letter stencil down the left side (hardly shows up in the pics, but it's there). Then splattered the page with ink on a whim. To finish it off, I added a picture of myself as a child, stamped the title, did some more doodling and smeared a lot of oil pastel all over in red and black.
And there you have it. My first journal page in months. It's good to be back!
