All the Little Things

Here’s a recent quick art journal spread of mine –

All the Little Things, an art journal spread by Anita

For the background of this spread, I started out by applying acrylic paints on it using a brayer. I then smooshed more acrylics by applying them over a gel plate and pressing the paper over it.

I then stamped insect images and scripty writing around the page using dye inks–I also spritzed some water at times before I stamped.

For the quote, I hand-tore a piece of paper, inked its edges with distress ink, and used dye ink to stamp the sentiment. I crumpled the paper to enhance the distressed look, and adhered it to the page.

To complete the spread, I pounced a small amount of acrylics at the edges of the page, and added marks and borders using Copic markers. Ta da!


With this spread, I’m joining these challenges:
