Hi Loves. Tiare here. My mixed media journal always needs some love. There is always time to play and get creative in my journals. So very grateful for moments to create. Speaking of gratitude, my page is centered around being thankful. I love making pages and just allowing certain words and thoughts to inspire my creativity.
This is the time of year that we start to focus on gratitude. Each year I do 30 days of gratitude inside my Gratitude Junk Journal along with some other creative souls. Therefore, for this page I was simply feeling thankful for this experience each year and of course, I am also happy for the challenge to create with the color of the week. It helps me to expand my creativity and step out of my comfort zone. The week's color is Gelatos® Caramel. Here's what I did:
Cover page with Gesso. Next, use Stamper’s Big Brush Pens: Orange Glaze 113, Chrome Yellow 268 and Pink Madder Lake 129 to create your background. Draw color onto craft sheet, spritz with water and drag page through color. Do this one color at a time.
Use stamps to add colorful shapes to your page. I used Stamper’s Big Brush Pens: Orange Glaze 113, Chrome Yellow 268, Black 199 and Pink Madder Lake 129 to add a variety of colored shapes to the background. Color onto each stamp, 1st color and stamp image around page. Repeat with other colors.
Doodle your flowers using PITT® Artist Pen Black 199. Color in flower petals using Gelatos® Caramel, just color and spread with the blender. Add a little to the background as well, by coloring and spreading with your finger or blender.
Tada! So fun!
