So, I sat down finally on Sunday evening at around 5 for the first time all weekend. I was exhausted from working all weekend at a garden show my company was in and getting together my business of Mary Kay... that's right the girl who has never owned a purse or worn much if any make up has begun to sell it. But I looove doing it. I get to meet so many people... ok back to it.......... but I knew I HAD to craft. I had to do something! Anything! I had the itch and need to let out some stress. I began working on my art journal page. This one like I said before was harder for me to do because it involved childhood memories and well.... mine or those I recall anyhow just aren't very good ones. None the less I had an idea to journal out that while it wasn't a great childhood, it's made me who I am today and I wouldn't have it any other way. Here is the prompt and a little tutorial on how I did it. Enjoy!
The prompt this time around is from Glenda!!
THE PROMPT: Childhood memories
(it can be something from your own childhood or from your kids, a memory, a thought...)
THE STUFF: Glimmer mists & paint (time to get messy!)
THE TECHNIQUE: silhouettes (can be black, patterned paper, anything goes as long as it's a silhouette)
|I started out with my journaling on mini notebook papers. I made sure to spray it with a workable fixative so that I could do fun things on top of it, without the ink smearing.|
|I then put down some alphabet stickers and use some new Pan pastels over it.. do you all knwo how much I love these roung little things of goodness. It's so much fun wet or dry!|
|I then use more pan pastels along the edges that was a tad bit wet for some texture, some more fixative sprayed down and then I did some dripage of some tattered angels Mist. Added a few strips of super thin masking tape as well.|
|I then layed down a few Maya Road chipboard silhouettes and used some more mists over them.|
|I then added some twine through a fun clock charm I found in my stash of misc. things. And added one of the misted Maya Road Chipboards to the page.|
|I then stamped memories on the right hand side and put down some black india ink drops to get some fun messiness!|
Stay tuned folks.. winner's of all of February's prize's will be announced SOON!
