Art Journal - Home

Hello, my dear crafty friends, happy February! For the new theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week, we want to see your project inspired by the letter "H"- hearts, hexagons, heat embossing, Hero Arts, Heidi Swapp, there are plenty of ways to let this week’s letter challenge inspire you!

I was inspired to create an art journal page with a "h"ome theme.

I made this art journal page because H is for home to me. As on most of my art journal pages, I apply a layer of Gesso on the background before any other color product.

"H"eidi Swapp Mustard Color Shine,  my favorite spray, was used on the background along with Distress Paint.

I glued some Tim Holtz metal embellishments and Prima Flowers die cut flowers to decorate the page.

The shading and distressing on the embellishments were created with Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen. 

I love the gorgeous Prima Flowers die cut flower. The cheese cloth added dimension and interest on this page.
