Hello! It's Rachel here to help get you in the LOVING spirit! I'm celebrating Valentine's Day in my art journal with the vivid pink Bubble Gum Gelatos®. It's also perfect that Design Memory Craft has this 'love' stencil that I used throughout the entire page.

The background of the page was all about adding texture. I used a variety of Mixed Media Stencils with Guava, Boysenberry, Kiwi, and Strawberry Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, and Pearl Texture Luxe™. Once my texture layer was all dry, I painted hearts with a brush and Chalkboard Paint. That's when I realized I needed to cover up the background... I put Gesso everywhere except inside the hearts, then colored a very thin layer of Guava Gelatos® on top.

The beauty of art journaling is that there are no rules! If you don't like something, change it! I'm really glad I changed my original plan, because I like the finished product so much more. To include the gorgeous Bubble Gum Gelatos®, I mixed the Gelatos® with Glaze gel and painted the mixture inside the hearts. I also did very thin 'scrapes' of Bubble Gum pigment over the page, which helps highlight the hidden textures.

I love the nautical preppy color combination of navy and pink, so I used the Boysenberry Gelatos® to fill in the 'love' stencil throughout the page. I finished it off with Glass Bead Glitter Gel on top of the letters and inside the hearts.

Thanks for joining me, and I hope you get crafty and artsy for Valentine's Day this weekend! I put together a process video, which you can watch here!
