2014 Journal52 - Week 24 - Courage

The prompt for week 24 in Journal52 was "Courage". It made me remember my own struggle years ago. I used some spackle scraped through a brick stencil for the bricks over a painted background. I painted over the bricks and between the bricks. I did hand lettering for most of the words and used letter stamps for the words courage and walls. I added a bit of stamping in the background and doodled around the edges.
We all show courage many times in our lives. Be brave!
Take care! :D

2014 Journal52 - Week 23 - Passion

For this page I took my inspiration from a journal page done by Kasia Krzyminska.  I gessoed the page and then added dimension by scraping joint compound through a stencil. When that was dry I drew in my flowers. I coloured some of the background with spray inks that I painted on instead of spraying. I then added some random stamping, writing, and bits of paper. Then I sponged some ink on the edges and some through a stencil. You can see more detail if you click on the picture to get a closer view.
This page is covered in texture and fun to touch.
What are you passions in life? :D

2014 Journal52 - Week 22 - Travel

The prompt for week 22 was Travel. We were to do a page that showed one of the ways we like to travel. I looked in my paper stash and I found an old piece of patterned paper that looked like an outdoor scene so I used it for the background. I stamped, coloured and cut out several trees and glued them down. I stamped the Stampin' Up camper from the stamp set Happy Camper and I enlarged it on my printer. I coloured it with pencil crayons and cut it out and adhered it to the background.Then I added some doodling, colouring, stamping and journaling to complete the page.
What is your favourite way to travel? Have fun doing an art journal page about it.
Take care and have a great day! :D
