Hi friends, I have an art journal spread to share with you today that I hope will bring spring right to your computer screen (or phone screen!). I bought a big giant hat a few days ago and took a few selfies outside in the sunshine. That photo, printed on a metallic vellum, became the basis for this spread. Have a look at my process:
So at our home we have a bird nest in our wreath on our front door. I don't know if the babies are going to make it, but we have stopped using the front door and are hoping they all pull through. I decided to use a bird as my motif here. Simple stencil design and acrylics in a tube.
For the background I just used some mail and some papers from Papyrus that I have been holding onto. I am loving that art journaling will allow me to use some of those beautiful papers!
I absolutely adore this dot stencil from Prima, and the way it directs the paint across the page.
One more look here:
Be inspired today. Even if you feel like the nest is perched precariously. Know that someone is on the other side of the door, listening out for you every day, hoping for your success. You're gonna make it.
