Summer 2012 Art Journal Pages
To take a little break from all the cards, I thought I would share the first two pages I've finished for Natalie Malik's In The Sun 2012 art journal class! I'm pretty behind (the first prompt went up on June 11) but it is a self-paced class, so I'm not worried! I'm having lots of fun! Check it out:
Materials: watercolors, gesso, black pen, foam number stickers
This page was for the Introduction prompt. This art journal had already been started (I have a few non-summer-related pages in the front) so I took Natalie's advise and made this title page to serve as a divider of sorts! You can learn the technique I used here.
Materials: watercolors, white gel pen, stamps by American Crafts, Stampin' Up ink in Summer Sun, security envelope scraps, wrapping paper, foam letter stickers, image from Urban Outfitters catalog
And this page was done for the Hello Summer prompt.
This page took me a long time, but I like it. I love that the Summer Sun ink matches the yellow in that big doily (which is from a roll of $1.50 wrapping paper I found at Michaels!) perfectly. I also love that it's called Summer Sun! How perfect is that? And I love that little doily stamp from the original Amy Tangerine collection.
I'm planning on journaling on this page some, I think. We'll see! I like it like this, too.
That's all I have for now! Another card is coming at you on Friday! And then some fun travel-related posts next week. Stay tuned!
