Art Journal - With Love

Hey, my lovely blog friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week is Valentine's week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to use pink and red color combo. It's not necessarily to be inspired by the spirit of the holiday, but rather the traditional colors associated with it. You’re welcome to use both together, other Valentine’s type colors, or even your favorite color palette that incorporates one or both of these colors.

I used red and pink along with a yellow color scheme to create an art journal page.

I decided to combine yellow with traditional Valentine colors on my art journal page this week.
The background was sprayed with Dylusions Pure Sunshine Ink Spray and stenciled with Tim Holtz Layering stencil.

The Tim Holtz Ornate Plates and Tim Holtz Mini Die Cut Hearts were covered with Gesso then colored with Distress Paint.

The background image is Tim Holtz Elements Remnants Rubs. The sentiment was stamped with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber stamp and Memento black ink pad. 

Both hearts were colored with Distress Paints and covered with the crackled paint. I distressed the edges of these two hearts with Faber-Castell Big Brush Pens. 

There were some more metal embellishments attached on this page. 

I really love this warm color scheme for my Valentine's project and hope you are inspired to create some beautiful project with this color scheme, too.

  12. The strong contrast of light and dark makes this very powerful. I especially like the highlights you applied to the heart shapes and the bee (of course ☺).

  13. Meihsia...your art is always so inspiring and amazing! I thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I am sorry that I don't make the rounds nearly as often as I should...but that doesn't mean that I don't see your beautiful art and am always in awe of your work. This art journal cover is so striking. I love the soft yellows and the red contrast. <3 Candy

  14. Another stunning journal page with so many interesting elements! I thought it was so clever of you to color the hardware red and put a strip of measuring tape behind it. LOVE that and also liked the addition of yellow. Seems like no matter what challenge we're issued, you do an incredible job every single time!
