Journal Time

Happy March everyone... it's time for a new project with Rhedds Creative Spirit... Today I've got an art journal page that I created utilizing several different art mediums and collage technique.

Using an old coloring book that I've had laying around forever I cut out the birds and applied them to my pages. Then ripping tissue paper randomly I then adhered them to my pages for added texture. The title letters "Thank You" were are just cut out of cardstock and put aside and colored using gelatos. I then took out my Distressed Ink pads and using several of the cool colors, swiped them over the top of the pages and then spritzed with water to allow for blending. The birds were colored with charcoal and gelatos. The title was then applied to the page and I finished it off with highlights of Inka Gold. I hope you enjoyed and give art journaling a try. There is no right or wrong, it's a perfect way to try out some of your products. Stop by Rhedds Creative Spirit and  link your mixed media or altered art project to our blog. Have a wonderfully creative day !!!

Love your journal pages Toni...as a child I was always told blue and green should never been seen together,I could never understand why because they marry up perfectly...
Great techniques on your pages too...I should really do more journalling, my pages would never look as good as this though...xx
