Want versus Have Art Journal Page

Hello, loves! It’s Donna here with another project for the Bad Girls Couture Design Team. For this project, I used the Vintage Music Page in my Paper Doll Palace Haute Mess Art Journal and Haute Mess Acrylic Paints and Mediums. I prepped the surface with Clear Gesso first before dry brushing a thin coat of Couture Pink acrylic paint.

Then, I mixed a bit of Gesso and Sweet Candy Kisses then used a cut file by Paige Evans as a stencil.

I also used the same mixture of Gesso and Sweet Candy Kisses to lightly brush the edges for a unified overall look.

I cut a 6 ½ x 6 ½ pattern paper into two and adhered in the middle of the page then splattered diluted Kiss & Don’t Tell and Bad & Tatted Acrylic Paints. Once the paints and mediums dried, I used some doily, messy thread, rhinestones and mounted fussy cut flowers and word arts using foam tape.

Love how this page turned out!
A gentle reminder to be thankful for the things in our lives, good, bad and in between.
That’s all from me today and may this inspire you to create something beautiful too!

Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting,
