Lovin' Art

So, my latest passion is art journaling ... I've been experimenting with different types of journals and so far I LOVE the Strathmore Mixed Media. The 5.5 x 8.5 is ideal to start as the size isn't overwhelming to fill - I do have a 8.5 x 11 but I've completed more pages in the smaller journal. This is also a great size to bring to crops. I tried Moleskin Sketch Journals but they didn't hold up to the wet media in my humble opinion - they are great books, just not as good for really wet media (just my opinion). I recently purchased a Moleskin Watercolor Journal which I haven't tried yet. Since I'm a huge Dyan Revealey fanatic I'm sure I'll be checking out her new art journal when it hits the stores!!!


So, I continued in my Strathmore yesterday and came up with these pages. I had absolutely NO idea where these pages were going ... I used several Creative Imaginations Existencils ... especially loving the angel wings in the background. I also used Dyan's Dylusions stamps and inks - so loving the inks in the water brushes - so flippin'convenient!!!!! Anyway, I found the quote for the pages AFTER I completed the pages ... that was so cool ...

For the sun I used a CI stencil and mixed modeling paste with Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze and scraped it over the stencil - I then toned it down with a light coat of gesso ...
