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.
Thanks for stopping by! See you Tomorrow!
