Art Journal

Happy Monday!!  I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day and weekend.  Today I thought I'd share an art journal page that I completed at the Great American Scrapbook Show in Arlington.  During the show I demoed a lot of products so I have a ton of pages in my art journal filled with beautiful colors.  While I was there I decided to take one of those pages and actually complete an art journal page with the supplies I had on hand.  So this is what I came up with:

The base of the page is made up of various Lindy's inks.  Then I layered Pink Paislee papers on top.

Even this photo is off of a Pink Paislee sheet.  The gorgeous hand dyed ribbons were part of the items Paper Wings had for sale at the show.

This gorgeous chippie is by Blue Fern.  This is the pole that the bird cage is meant to hang off of but I like to beak up the chippies and use them in different ways.  So I used this one to visually ground the focal image.

This is the Blue Fern bird cage.  I sprayed it with several Tattered Angels and Lindy's sprays to create this look.  I even used some Goosebumps texture spray and I have to say, I love the way it turned out.  I really like the contrast of the turquoise against all of the muted colors.

Here's one last look at the completed page ;D

Thanks so much for joining me today!!  Have a wonderful day!!!
