Secret Diary - Journal Page

Hiya!

Georgie here today and this time I'm sharing an art journal page from my Moleskine. :)

A messy page, probably my state of mind coming through - lol, the idea with this was to just create and go with the flow.



I used strips from 7 Dots Cold Country 6x6 Paper Pack and layering them randomly and interspersing with some dry wall tape.

I stuck the strips with Rangers Collage Glue Stick.


I also layered some Cold Country Elements, like the hearts, circular 'Love' and the 'Find Me'.



In between the layers I used also used Tim Holtz Sketchbook Tissue Tape.


I also added some Cold Country Word Stickers for my diary sentiments, the idea behind choosing these words is that I will follow my art wherever it will take me :) 

Some Tim Holtz Rub Ons: Elements were used to offer a little interest in places and the Stamp and Add: Butterfly Wings.



Here I used the lid from Tim Holtz's Distress Paints to create arty paint rings! Who doesn't love these?!!


I edge some strip edges with Derwent Inktense in Ink Black - cannot live without this pencil now, it's just perfect for shading :)


I chose only three paints from Tim Holtz's Distress Paint line: Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. With the blues I created washes of colour over the top and splatters of paint with all three to finish up!

Have a fabulous day,
Hugs,
Georgie xx

Oh my gosh. This is Absolutely Beautiful! The different layers, the gorgeous blues.... Oh sighhhhh. If this is your version of messy, my mind must be like a bomb went off. If I could achieve pages like this, I would do more journal crafting. Tfs. C

Wonderful journal page, Georgie! I love how you layered the strips of paper with the dry-wall tape. I like the word stickers and the whole idea of your art! I wish I could be creative like this! It isn't happening for me lately! Still haven't started my art journal - I think the first page is the hardest!
