ART JOURNAL PAGES
Well, these are the first four pages in my art journal. I don't know what the first page was - except an experiment with some paper and colors. The second page with the gold I liked a bit better. My third and fourth pages I like even more. Although I don't know exactly what I am going for when I sit down. You can see that I leaned, once again, to the blue family in my background. I added texture to my background and, once it was dried, I added a bit of color to it. I also added a few stampings in the BG and my titles on each page. The chipboard frames I used I wanted sort of a grungy feel to them -so I embossed them several times with teal and brown - wanting sort of a peeled paint look. I added some paper and a couple of pretty butterflies in the frame. Lastly, I added a couple of grungy looking ticket stubs. So, all-in-all, I think I am making more progress - learning a bit as I go.
