NaNoJouMo 2015 (Art Journal Page - "Express Faith")

Another super quick page for NaNoJouMo 2015!

 Today’s page was inspired by this tag I found in my stash. I like it so much, I wanted to make a page for it.  
How I Made the Tag:
This tag has a very water-y blend of Dina Wakley’s Magenta & Lemon paint. They make this gorgeous orange color when they mix.
After the water paint was applied (very haphazardly), I applied the magenta paint thru a Heidi Swapp circle stencil.
I then stamped a flower stamp with teal ink over the background.
I stamped my focal flower on watercolor paper and fussy cut it.
After it was cut, I colored it in using Watercolor pencils.
I sewed a piece of book page and a strip of painted deli paper together and grouped everything on my tag.
The final step was going over the edges with a black ink pad.

  1. You have a wonderful "sense?" of colour, and as for your writing, I love, love, love it.

  2. Thank you so much! I used to create everything with a color wheel next to me, but now I don't need to. So this is a true compliment. As for my handwriting, I've been working on wiring in a way that I can like my handwriting, so thank you for that too! 💖
