Yellow Color Scheme Art Journal

Hello, my dear crafty friends, this week, we have XYZ alphabet challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Usually we focus on just one letter, but this week we’re giving you three. You could also be inspired by the end (as this is the end of the alphabet), zoo animals, yellow, or yarn. Can't wait to see what you come up with! 

I decided to use the sunny yellow color on my art journal page this week.

I always love to create my projects with bright colors. On this art journal page, I was inspired to spray Distress Spray Stain and apply Distress Paint Mustard Seed on the background to create the sunny yellow scheme after preparing the page with Gesso .

Some sentiments by Tim Holtz Stamps were added to remind myself to be brave and own my dreams.

The background was also stenciled with Prima Flowers stencil and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. The embellishments were glued using Tombow glue.

I distressed the edges of the page with ColorBox Art Dauber and Distress Paint.
