Every Day Is Another Chance - Art Journal Page

Playing in my art journal has become so rewarding and grounding lately!!  

I decided to join in on Dina Wakley's and Ranger Ink's Show Us Your Media Challenge.  Dina has chosen the theme Gratitude and June's prompt is 'I Am Grateful For Second Chances'.  

This two page spread began with the tag.  I had stamped the image and coloured with scribble sticks and then applied a wet scribble stick to stamp to get the water coloured blue dots effect.  The tag needed a home so I found some Collage Collectives paper that seemed to be the perfect backdrop for the tag.

First I applied gloss sprays through a stencil on the canvas page and then applied the left over spray on the stencil to the opposite page.  I cut out a section of the canvas and adhered it along with some strips of the paper so that this page flowed with the tag page. 

This was my first time using a canvas page in the journal, it took a long time for me to get past my fear of the canvas, lol.  So happy with how this turned out.  My journalling says "Today and everyday I am grateful for second chances".

In a Vanilla World - Dylusions Journal Page

Seeing all the inspiration out there since the Covid 19 lockdowns began has provided so much inspiration!!  In particular I've been following Dina Wakley's Daily Demos and Dyan Reaveley's Day by Dy.  I am amazed every day at the generosity of their sharing of their time, knowledge and techniques.  It is priceless.

This day last week I was feeling the need to create something bright and bold.  So I put down a couple Dylusions paint colours for a background in my small Dylusions journal.  I added some stenciling for interest then I cut out these pieces and coloured them with copics and added a sentiment.  Some white detailing with a Posca paint pen and that was it!!
