Day 3


I was introduced to Art Journaling a couple years ago while seeking to expand my artistic abilities. I discovered it was a prefect blend of skill and therapy. I love it. I've met quite a few other artist through Facebook groups dedicated to art journaling. One group is a "paint and pass." Each person has a journal and sends it to group members who then create art in it and pass it to the next person. This group had no theme, just create art.
I had just started working in a fellow artists journal the week I received a Unity grab bag I had ordered. My creativity was a little slow to flow on the pages, so I set it aside and went through the grab bag. It contained a few artsy pieces, a dotted border, a paint swoosh, encouraging words and a heart, all of which started to spark inspiration. I have no idea why, but the heart made me think of the bleeding heart plant, so I decided to create one. I was also inspired to create the little bit that hangs from the flower and a leaf by cutting a piece of excess rubber into their shapes.

So many materials went into these pages, it was like a mad scientists lab. A little of this and little of that... Paint, Ink, Glue, Markers and more. All the images on the bleeding heart page are Unity Stamps. The Butterfly is from the Keep Wild kit. The sentiment "dont be pushed..." Is from a Unity & Donna Downey kit called Empowered Words . "PROVE them wrong" and SHE is a Masterpiece on the other page are also from Donna Downey kit called, As I See It
The remaining stamps were all in the grab bag: Paint swoosh(white) Dotted border, Heart, Be Fearless. As well as many others I haven't used yet.

The woman was hand drawn and painted. She is accented with shimmery goodness the camera didn't pick up so I took a little video for movement.

There's a little surprise for the Art Journal owner. These pages glow in the dark. :) It was a challenge to get a photo, I'll tell ya!

  13. Nice work! Great idea about the "pass it on journaling", I might try something like that around here too. You are a true artist, your color choices, positioning of the stamps, drawing etc. You really do have an eye for this. Thank you for sharing.
