Art Journal Observations

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my lovely friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. So happy that you are back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we are creating for the spring - "With spring most definitely on the way, despite the snow and ice in some areas, we are celebrating the start of the new season with changes in the weather! Spring showers or flowers, or you can use both on your creations! " I really am looking forward to seeing what you create.

I was inspired to create a rainy day themed art journal page.

I really enjoy the rainy days in spring, so on this art journal page. First, I created the blue and gray color scheme using Distress Paints and Distress Spray on the background of this page.

The flowers were die cut with Simon Says Delicate Thistle Die and adhered on the page using Tombow Mono Glue. I added the sentiments with Tim Holtz Rubs and Big Chat Stickers.

After pasting the text wrap on the page, I sprayed the Distress Spray over the layering stencil to create the sun rays pattern.

The flowers were die cut and embossed with clear embossing powder, then adhered on the page with Tombow Mono Glue. Last step was adding some rub-on and sentiment stickers for more interest.
