Hello there! I have a new Art Journal page for the 3rd prompt in Smeared & Smudged’s Kickstart Your Art. The prompt is “Found Objects,” and I went with Laura’s fab tutorial to make my page. Plus, we are celebrating a Wacky Holiday over at the Bombshell Blog. It’s Inspire Your Heart with Art. I have all the details about this cool day on the Bombshell Blog.
I should have probably gone with some deeper tones, but I was working only with Glimmer Mists…so they tend to be a bit translucent. I really need to get some of those Dylusions sprays. I used some buttons, paper clips, and a couple of other things all over the page and sprayed the heck out of them. After the page dried, I stamped some pretty flowers from Bombshell Stamps‘ ‘Till Death set.
So as I was looking at the page…thinking about the prompt and wacky holiday, I realized that even the ordinary can be extraordinary. Nothing is mundane….everything can hold even a little bit of magic. Even those buttons and paper clips that I used to make my pretty (and super shimmery!) background. We just have to look at things the right way. And doesn’t that just inspire my heart. 🙂
I’ve gotta say, I have been loving this journaling-everyday-thing. I have been coming up with uncomplicated pages, but that’s ok. It’s getting me to think, and create with the kids, and get my thoughts on paper. It’s been a blast! Be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see more fun projects! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
