Art Journal Fun Day

Hello lovelies!

Hope you are well and surviving the heat today.....I think my art supplies have even started to melt!

This is my second project for July.  I wanted to create an entry for my Finnibair Art Journal by Prima.  It has been neglected for months.  So I welcomed the chance to play with it :)

I started with a double spread by using old book pages, matt gel medium and a watered down coat of white gesso.  I then added some blue coloured paint to top of one page and bottom of other.  The alternative had some Prima papers added, also by Prima, from Finnibair.

I added loads of random strips of washi tapes in different blue tones, splashes of blue spray, Lindys Stamp Gang in Bayou Boogie Gold, and the yellow is by Winsor & Newton.  I die cut some stars and used a prima tag to create a mat for my instax photo.  I painted the wooden prima lady with the above Lindys Spray and Silks.  The blue colour was done by painting with Tattered Florals Glimmer Mist in Splash.

I finished by adding embellishments, enamel dots, more paint splashes, painted Prima chipboard, flowers and Heidi Swapp words.

Hope this helps inspire you and thank you for visiting.  See you all soon with my August creations.
