Journal 52 week 2

BE or Just Be or Being was the journal prompt for our week at Journal 52.  My friends Angie, JoAnn and Rebekah and I have all decided to join in on this fun experience.  I have been wanting to Art Journal for quite a while but just kept putting it off.  I made three pages last year.  Embarrassed smile

This year I decided to commit to this journey and we will all encourage each other.  Here’s my Inky BackGround  for Simon Says Monday Challenge.  I used distress inks and a water brush to create my background grass. I used my DreamWeaver Stencil on the butterfly and then randomly laid it on different portions for a bit of texture and to use up the remaining ink on it.  I used Ranger distress dauber inks for that.  Then I took a bit of that ink and mixed it into some alcohol very diluted to spray my sky.    I used acrylic ink direct to a stamp to create my sunflower head and then drew in the leaves.

I have really enjoyed my two weeks so far.  Smile   Thanks for looking.

  1. Such bright and happy journal pages. Those are probably very cathartic for you since I know it isn't exactly a bright and happy time for you right now. But see, it is still there deep inside. Keep on getting well!

  2. Gorgeous pages! Love that they are so bright! That butterfly is really stunning! Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra
