Art Journal Page || Finding My Way

Hey everyone! I have an art journal page to share with you today inspired by Finnabair's new venture The Art Daily Café.

You can check out all about it here.

Basically it's about carving out time for yourself everyday to be creative..whatever that looks like to you. I made a page especially inspired by some pages Finn showed in the intro video and beginning blog post about it.

Watch the process here:

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!

We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

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 little like wood to me. Lastly, I used clear stones for a finishing touch to my tag.

Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen technical difficulties, I was unable to have my video up in time for the release. I hope to have it up in the next few days. In the meantime, be sure to check out DeeDee's video here. Also, you can check out DeeDee's blog post. the blog post here.

Thanks so much for looking!
