Hope Anchors The Soul Art Journal | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girls. It’s Donna here today with a new project using Haute Mess products.

I created another page in my Palace Princess Art Journal and it was fun playing and experimenting with mediums and paints to add texture and interesting details.

I started with one of the pages in the Haute Mess Palace Princess Art Journal as my base or background. I applied clear gesso before adding texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I based the acrylic paints colors on the Kaisercraft Antiquities collection I used. So I chose Caution Tape, Make It Rain and Bad & Tatted as main colors. The combination of yellow and bluish gray is beautiful.

I have a process video you can watch.

I hope you liked my project today! See you in my next post.

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!

Supplies Used:

Haute Mess Art Journal Palace Princess

Haute Mess Mediums: Clear Gesso, Molding Paste

Haute Mess Acrylic Paints: Naked, Fallen Angel, Caution Tape, Make It Rain, Bad & Tatted

Others:
Kaisercraft Antiquities collection (papers, stickers, stencil, stamp), Pearls and Rhinestones, Kaisercraft Chestnut Ink, White Thread

Care Bear Colors!

February’s kit is FULL of lovely colors! For this page, I was inspired to use strips of most of the papers included, to showcase all the prettiness that this kit includes!

And, I am such a sucker for a rainbow of pastels!

I layered them up, including strips of the fabric in the kit as well, and stitched them down!

Some watercolor action, along with some of the beautiful Prima flowers in the kit finish it off!

My journaling tag is in a pocket behind the photo and it holds the story about how when I was little, all I wanted was a Care Bear. They were quite spendy, so my crafty mother made me one instead. I had a one-of-a-kind Care Bear! It doesn’t get much better than that, right?!?!
