Here’s a recent art journal spread of mine –

Beauty, art journal spread by Anita

I started the spread with a background, by pouncing acrylics over a stencil. I also used a bit of stamping using dye inks over this, and added some quick acrylics brush strokes.

For the focal image, I used a die over multiple layers of paper. I adhered all the diecuts to one another, then stuck the final piece over the background.

I then started doodling in the nooks and recessed areas using a gel pen. This was a lot of meditative fun! The overall effect reminds me of henna designs.

I finally stamped a sentiment along one of the edges using foam alphabet stamps and dye inks, and made dotted marks with a gel pen, following the contours of the letters. And that completed the spread. Ta da!


With this spread, I’m joining these challenges –
