Post 258: Art Journal Page 2 (Live Life Now)

 Hi Friends :)

I'd like to share an Art Journal Page I made recently. This was made for a Guest Design Post over at the Craftreat Blog showcasing their beautiful stencils, you can check out all the projects here.

Essentially, I just created some organic backgrounds with watercolors by spritzing the paper with water, adding pigment and letting the color go where it wanted to. Then added stencil designs with distress inks. Did some background stamping. The sentiment is a die cut from a sticker pack I was gifted. I matted the page onto a black base to give a more finished look and lend strength to the page. I wanted to go for flat pages which I could bind together later on because my current journal is quite full and bulky, so this seemed like an easier way to work and create. I love the organic splattered artsy look of the page.  

List of Supplies:

Craftreat Stencils-  Washi Tape, Aztec Borders, 2 Step Lattice Flower
Stamplorations Stamp- Trendy Birds 2 Shery Russ Designs 
Gansai Tambi Watercolor
Distress Inkpads- Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot
Ranger's Round Blending Tool and foams
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad

Here are a couple of close-up photos of the page:
