Daisies are in bloom...right?
I don’t keep up with the blooming schedule of all flowers after Daffodils, Tulips and Iris’. A daisy is blooming on my art journal page. I assume there must be 78,489 blooming daisies in a specified area. What else would those numbers mean?
My page began with a book page glued down. That did not glue down well so I tore out the loose parts. I then sprayed some Distress Spray Stain colors on the page. That looked bad so I Gessoed over that mess. That looked better so I continued on and inked large numbers from a stencil.
Then I added more numbers. A little text stamping and modeling paste through a stencil.
There was no plan, just see what comes next. Some grunge circles, rubber stamping, ink with a stencil and little bits of book page.
I went looking for more ephemera to make to add to the page and a die cut daisy painted with Tombow markers.
I added black paint splatters before gluing on the daisy and exhibit pieces.
It was time to STOP!
It was time to STOP!
It was probably time to stop sooner, but I struggle with that part every time.
I’m linking my art journal page to Creative Artiste Challenge Blog 73rd challenge. The theme is always Anything Mixed Media.
Always interesting to learn from you.
You make art I aspire to create. Your art is stunning. I love that you NEVER give up. This is one incredible beauty and the daisy is the perfect focal image. I am incredibly impressed, as always.
You really know how to color a flower Annie. This is a great summer page. And it has super depth and detail too. Since I am a guest designer at Creative Artiste MM, I want to say thanks for joining the challenge. Hope the new week is going well. Hugs-Erika
Lovely to watch your page come together and the daisy finishes it off beautifully. xx
Fabulous journal page, great to see how it evolved. Hugs, Valerie
I think you stopped at just the right time!
I love this page, the colored daisy is amazing!
Your journal pages are so much fun and so full of ideas! Thanks for sharing your ideas and techniques, Annie!
Annie, I think you stopped exactly where it needed to be! Great journal page!
We are neighbors in the gallery at Creative Artiste so I wanted to drop by and say Hi Neighbor. Your pages are so inspirational. I have not gotten into journaling as of yet. I only make cards but this one has me thinking. Your daisy looks so happy on it pages.
Annie this is beautiful, it's as if that die cut daisy is in the spotlight highlighted by that blue hue.. and rightly so how fabulously you have painted it with the Tombows. A page full of texture and grace let those flowers bloom when ever they are always a pleasure to see.
So Happy you shared your journal page with us @ Creative Artiste, good luck and best in our July Anything Mixed Media Goes challenge.
Creative wishes Tracey x
What a pretty journal page!
Every single element is just right here and beautifully balanced. I do struggle with journaling and seeing something as well put together as this is very inspiring, thank you. x
I enjoyed the trip through your creative art with all the bits which seem just right. I like the way you use numbers and random words, the diamond stencils and black paint splatters which I would be very reluctant to try at the end. The daisy is the perfect focal point and looks very pretty. And going back once more I love the blue shadowing and the touches of yellow. What a successful piece this is.
Thus are journal page is stunning 😍
Wow, this is stunning! I love all the mixed media that you used to create this page. The background and texture that you created with the stenciling and the daisy is so pretty framed by the circle - perfect 😁. Thanks so much for joining us at Creative Artiste with your amazing art! Happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x
Totally stunning Annie! The background alone is fabulous - the addition of the die cut daisy and the ephemera turn this into an absolute joy to see! Hugs, Chrisx
