Plus I wanted to share even more journal pages I created last week that are inspired by Tim's 12 Tags of 2015 which you'll see below.
For my Remnant Rub Resist pages, I used combinations of Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord, Festive Berries, and Abandoned Coral Distress Stain sprays for my background.
And a variety of remnant rubs in my stash, mostly Botanical. I colored some ivory card stock with Cracked Pistachio and Mown Lawn Distress inks, then die cut the Spring Greenery.
This new stamp set "Flower Garden" is such a beauty! I stamped several with archival black ink onto ivory card stock, colored them with Distress Markers, and fussy cut them then adhered to my journal page.
The stems were stamped directly onto the page. I painted them in with Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint with a thin paintbrush.
While I started a bit late with the 12 Tags of 2015, (or in my case, Journal Pages) I am happy to share with you my pages, inspired by Tim's tags.
My January pages feature my favorite color combinations of greenish blues with pops of red. I seem to do this a lot, I notice. You can view Tim's awesome January tag here.
There are certain limitations when doing an art journal page, rather than a tag. One of which is bulk. I need to keep my pages fairly flat, so I opted for embossing my 15.
The chit-chat stickers Tim used are great for tags, but far too small in scale for my journal pages, so I created larger ones by stamping phrases from "Hashtags" and "Simple Sayings."
My February pages feature not only the Thrift Shop ephemera, but also cut-outs from the Wallflower paper. I mixed in some tissue tape (red, of course) to fill in certain areas. You can check out Tim's February tag here.
I found a piece in one of the Wallflower papers that said, "My Dearest" in red. It was the perfect strip to run across the top of my page, over the happy couple.
I posted my March pages a few days ago and gave you more of a step-by-step tutorial. If you missed it, you can check it out here.
I'm having so much fun playing in my art journal. It's something I have always wanted to get comfortable with, and it's finally starting to feel easier each time I do it. The fear is subsiding and the enjoyment is growing. Are you art journaling? Join me, won't you. You can find all kinds of great products like the ones I used in these journal pages from InspirationEmporium.com.
Thank you all for your sweet comments and support as I explore this new adventure on my creative journey.
