Rain Grows Flowers - Art Journal Page

Hello colorful creative souls! I am very much looking forward to a 3 day weekend of playtime in my studio. But before the weekend begins, I'm here to share a very quick art journal spread that celebrates our first 4 featured Gelatos® in the 52 Weeks of Color campaign: Lemon, Snow Cone, Margarita Mix, and Guava!

This art journal page started off very neat and clean, but took a quick turn when some emotions got the best of me and I covered a lot of my pages with black Chalkboard Paint. I'm so thankful that art is a part of my life so I can use it as a stress reliever! So anyways, I started with a base of Gelatos® Snow Cone and Margarita Mix that I blended with a wet paintbrush...

Next, I added some pattern with the Doodle Stencil Collection and Snow Cone Gelatos, followed by the Scandinavian Stencil Collection with Lemon Gelatos.

And that's when my giant fan brush met my Chalkboard Paint and they decided to make friends with my art journal :) Once the Chalkboard Paint dried I used my fingers to add some Texture Luxe™ Pearl.

I revisited this page a couple days later, when I was in a much better mood :) and decided to brighten it back up with some flowers. I outlined the flowers with Gesso and a brush. Once the Gesso dried I blended the petals with Guava Gelatos, the centers with Lemon Gelatos, and outlined with Snow Cone Gelatos. I also added some very loose details with my Paper Crafter Crayons™.
