The theme this month at Art Journal Journey is - Inspired By
I am inspired to make art by practically everything I see on many social media platforms. Recently on Pinterest, I was inspired by a dragonfly that had a clock hand for the body.
I won’t even bother describing the troubles I had. BUT, I have to say I’ve had the most frustrating best time getting an art journal page finished.
I see loads of painted backgrounds that I love but I find it difficult to get an acceptable result. There is so much acrylic paint, and watercolor paint on this page! By the time I get an acceptable result, I cannot seem to remember to stamp my images BEFORE using modeling paste!
I trashed one page, I wasn’t going to trash ANOTHER! I stamped the words on a separate piece of paper, tore it around the edges and glued it on. Not exactly the desired look, but that leaves room for improvement, right?
I’ve had some silver metal words in my stash forever. I darkened the metal with Timber Brown StazOn ink.
The butterfly is a die cut from the first ruined page. Until I ruined the first page attempt, I really liked it and managed to salvage most of the page to use in other ways.
I love the clock hand and a brad idea for the butterfly body. I’m pleased enough with the page not to rip it from the journal. Always an accomplishment for me still.
