Happy new month everyone. August has arrived!
I'm here today to welcome Alison, whom many of you might know her blog Craftytrogs Arty Adventures. She is our lovely hostess this month at Art Journal Journey. And her new challenge is
POCKETS AND TAGS.
I began my page with some black watercolor paper I recently ordered from Amazon. I colored my black background with some Dina Wakely spray paints and well as a stencil. Then I sprayed over that with more colors of her paints. I managed some nice looking rust in spots. I also used some ancient foam stamps (some of the first I ever bought back in the 1990's) with some paints to add the blue dots and the white flowers.
My tag is made with several TH stamps and various ink colors. I just overlaid and stamped until I liked what I had. I began with grey ink to color the some of the background.
After last month of making theme pages, it was a lot of fun to take a different route on this page and just stamp and paint and play.
I also added this happy little girl. I am smitten with these AALL & Create stamps by Janet Klein. I just "had" to buy a few.
I also added this quote.
So before I go, just a quick reminder. Art Journal Journey has some rules. The big one is that is an art journal challenge. So be sure your tags and pockets are on journal pages please.
Thanks for visiting.
