April Art Journal

Hi everyone!  Today I'd like to share an entry out of my art journal with you, that I made for Practical Scrappers.  Our Art Journal challenge was a quote from Robert Graves and here is my take on it.

I first started by glueing several different patterned scraps of scrapbook paper to the pages.  I also adhered some vintage music sheets and vintage book paper to the pages as well.

Then, I went behind and gessoed all of the edges to soften them.  I had printouts of the various children, butterfly wings, mushrooms and other ephemera that I fussy cut.
 I used a chocolate gelato stick from Faber-Castell all over the pages to soften the stark white of the gesso.  Then I did some random stamping all over the pages and adhered all of my cut out pieces.
 I used more gesso around the cut out pieces and also some more of the chocolate gelato stick from Faber-Castel around the words.  Then I accented with rub-ons and a black stabilo pencil.
 I hope you enjoyed my art journal entry for Practical Scrappers I always have so much fun with it!  Thanks for stopping by, see you next time!

P.S.  In other news, I'd like to give you an update on the Graphic 45 Design Team Audition.  I did not make this years Design Team unfortunately, but I had such a wonderful time creating with all of their gorgeous products!!!  Being chosen for Graphic 45's Top 30 was such an honor, I loved every minute and was very appreciative.  I look forward to seeing all the creations from this years team, they are all so very talented and well deserved!
