You Are Lovely

Good morning! I have a fun art journal spread that I created for you lovely ladies today! Sometimes, we need that gentle reminder that we are all “lovely” in our own way. For this art journal page, I used the Black stitched cardstock/chipboard page with stitching. Before I started painting this piece, I was going for an abstract design. I grabbed a few colors and different size brushes along with my gesso. I just love the stitched border…and how the different colors along the edges add so much texture.

 

I coated the black cardstock/chipboard page using the Drama Queen acrylic paint. My favorite thing about these paints is that they are not thick so they are easy to work with! Also, you can add a some molding paste to the paint to thicken it up if you would like. I like my paint thin and runny because it goes onto the cardstock much easier. This is my opinion. Once the paint was dry, I smeared some Broken Doll and Last Sin paint all over the spread.

Then I grabbed a thick brush and gesso to create a heart in the center of the page.

After allowing the gesso to dry for a few hours I grabbed the Bad & Tatted acrylic paint along with a tiny brush and splashed black paint all over the spread.

Once the paint was completely dry, I added a few word stickers and some gems.

This spread was very therapeutic for me. I think I’ve discovered a new love… Art journaling can be so fun and freeing…  If you haven’t given art journaling a try, we have so many tutorials and videos to get you started!  The art journals are made from great quality fabric and they are amazing.
