Changing Seasons

This photo really doesn't show the depth of this autumn journal page. But, the intense color I'm really diggin. My inspiration came from this magazine photo. 
I used acrylic paint to color the leaves and a crackle stamp to give the impression of veins. 
 I first used a stencil and sponged Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa ink. 
 Then I drew and painted leaves on the page. To add another layer I used the Tsukineko ink and crackle stamp.
Added another background stamp to add deminsion.
To finsh the page I die cut several leaf shapes, colored them with acrylic paint and layered them on top of the background. 
Finishing touches were I added a sentiment and used white acrylic paint using an old credit card. 

Autumn in the air.

Beauty of Dreams

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. This journal page was inspired by the prompt: VINTAGE style and my inspiration came from this birdcage photo. 
The mixed media background was created layering light blue, pink, white and grey acrylic paint. The layering of paint made the background give the impression of old peeled paint. I then layered old dictionary pages. I stamped the swirl background (Tsukineko/Brown ink) onto white tissue paper. Next came the lace I placed across page.  The birdcage was adorned with pearls and silver cording.


Comments are welcome.

This journal page was created for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This journal page was inspired by the unique and creative inspirational "Word Search" puzzle! We need to make a project based on any of the "spooky" words we found.
Based on the word search puzzle I located the following words: Bat, Witch, Black cat, Moon, Cauldron and Purple. From here I had some ideas!  
Do you see the "spooky" words in my layout?
  This page was created by first coming up with a cohesive concept. 
 I first drew my sketch on my blank journal page.  Next, I used several mixed media mediums;  acrylic paint, then used pearl essence paint through a stencil, created bubbles in the cauldron with white puffer paint and then lightly rubbed the tops of the bubbles with green metal paint. Do you see the "words" in my art? 

Please let a comment so, I can stop by your blog.

This journal page was created for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Inspiration can come from many different places, take for example this inspirational photo. 
I used color and shape from the photo for this journal page. I titled this page, "Life." This has been a difficult year and felt I needed to focus on what makes me happy. In my case it would playing in my studio.  Found this quote, "Remember this moment. Cherish this story. Celebrate this life." 
For the background I used the common household papers. Add some color with acrylic paint, big Pitt maker, sharpies, doodles and abracadabra you have a completed page. 
Challenges I participated in: Use your stuff- Ink and markers (Monday), We Love 2 Create - Mixed Media (Sunday)
