DecoArt Blogger Outreach: Inspire Art Journal page

                                                                        Hi all

I have started an Art Journal which is going to be a learning curve for me as i can't seem to get it quite right. Maybe i am my own worse critic but I've seen some absolute stunning art journal pages and i would like to know how they get them so bloody fabulous.

I started the page off by covering the page in the  Short Circuit Stencil and painting a couple of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics onto the page and spritzing water on to them to make them run.

I then tore up a few strips of Mirabelle Decoupage sheets and glued them to the page before painting over the centre with gesso and then white crackle paste. The words are from Sussan K Weckessers  Journal words set.

I used a itty bitty stamp from Unity but the lettering didn't show very well so i painted over it.

Thank you Carol

You should just go for it and see what happens. My first one went in the bin because it was awful but eventually you make one that doesn't hurt eyes.
