NaNoJouMo 2015 Day #2 (Art Journal Page - "Strange Dream")

Hey Crafters!
There isn’t much to say about this NaNoJouMo page. I got up at 3:30 AM to work on it, so I was pretty much running on auto-pilot.
The prompt for today was a photo art work by Dawn Sokol. Check it out here.

I just pulled some color inspo from her photo for my page today.

I love using tissue paper to add stamped images. I could have never successfully stamped the flower on this page because the background was so bumpy and textured. Since the tissue paper disappears (for the most part) it looks like the image is stamped on the background perfectly! I love that technique.

This page took me about half hour to complete. To read more about how I am approaching NaNoJouMo this year, check out this blog post.

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
