For my new friends and followers that are not familiar with my first art journal journey, I decided to journal and tell the stories of the women in my family with some old vintage photos to share with my niece and future women in the family. I refer to this art journal book as, “Women of Substance.”
Today, I have two more entries to share with you. I’m so giddy about the near completion of this project because I’m eagerly looking forward to starting another book. I can’t tell you the number of times that I have wanted to start other books during this process because of all the subject ideas I have in my head.
The “J” page was created with Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powders of Angel Wings and Bronze applied with a petite branch and leaf stamp. The same colors were applied on the Blue Fern Studios perfume bottle chipboard. I once saw these colors incorporated in a luxurious printed floral fabric that I have kicked myself over for not purchasing years ago. Those colors have stayed in my head and now I can release them. Lots of fussy cutting used on some Prima papers. These last two pages in the book are more of a “flat” style because it’s becoming more difficult to close the book covers. This is something I will try and perfect on the next book.
The “Poppy” page: A poppy printed napkin was printed on ink jet paper. The matte gel worked really well in applying the paper to the page, and it also helped seal the colors to prevent them from bleeding too much. A welcomed result.
One more page to go, and then I will work on the cover of the book and be done!
It thrills me to know that a number of you have started your art journals too. I would like to stop by your blog to see what you have been doing, so let me know where I can find you in the comment section below.
Thank you for visiting.
