I haven’t shared any art journalling in a very long time but I still enjoy playing around with a journal and my art supplies, when I have the time! This is opening page from my Sodalicious Journal; I try to stick with the one colour palette, as seen on the yarn ice cream scoops! I tore that particular page from a little A5 catalogue from Boden last spring.
This is a magazine tear out of pretty yarns and a postcard I received from Pam Garrison when I ordered lots of her fabulous rubber stamps! I adore the stamps, I use them often and love them dearly. I love how the postcard became instant art in my journal :p thanks Pam!
This was initially just some layers with paint, exploring different mixes, finishes and shades. I then found random ephemera and stickers that I had in my little scrap box and attached them alongside Liz here.
This was an envelope from Boden (I think) I painted over the address part and used random splodges of gesso and paint drips.
Another page from the Spring Boden catalogue! I love those catalogues. Some stickers and some journalling cards helped to finish this layout, all I had to do was add some journalling and never got around to it!
This was something I had found online with regards to Arianna Huffington’s incredible book, Thrive, I printed it out and kept it in my journal because the advice is sage!
The yellow page was the front of a boden top that I loved, I saw it on eBay and because I would look ridiculous in sunshine yellow (I’m so pale I reflect sunlight, so I hate to think how I would look i this top), it was beautiful so I had to use some watercolour pencils and keep a visual note!
I have a couple more layouts in there but I recently discovered a journal that had the cover ripped and it was only half-finished so I’m going to finish this new journal. Now that I reflect upon it, I probably should have finished that little sodalicious journal and used the end of the other journal after that. ^_^
