Art journalling session preparation

Awake still in the middle of the night and have three times tried to sleep but now back on my phone faffing around so I thought I might as well update my blog and post todays project.

This year my friends and I are continuing our art journalling sessions. This time instead of a technique or different media each time and me teaching, it will be a themed based session and everyone can create according to that theme using whatever media I have out and available.  I will provide some inspiration as part of the theme and then people can have a free for all and go with whatever takes their fancy on the night.

The first theme we have is flight.

One of the samples I’ve made is in a journal and two are tags.  The journal spread I am sharing today as it also works for the Mixed Media Mojo challenge of winter and glitter.

I used Paperbabe stamps (newish to me… have had them a while but not used them till now) and a selection of random alphas and words.

The background was created using Brushos (Ultramarine and Lemon) then the image coloured using Brushos again, this time as a more traditional watercolour (light brown and ultramarine and scarlet).  I then used Stickles to add glitter to the angels wings.

Hopefully this will inspire someone at the class.  I will be sharing the tags tomorrow.

Happy crafting!
