I Am Unique: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
As I was sitting at the bus stop this morning, I was looking at my little people and thinking about what makes each one of them unique. I find it so amazing that I have three children, all with the same father and mother and yet they are very different.
My oldest is sensitive, sweet and the perfect older brother except when it comes to his roommate. He has swindled his little brother out of more than one battery operated toy. 😉
And my middle is so cuddly and snugly. He LOVES bunnies and has more energy than all my children put together. Most afternoons he can be found laying on the floor, using his feet to propel him through the house on his back. I call him my human vacuum cleaner.
And my sweet rainbow baby is still developing her personality but is so happy when around her family. She makes the funniest expressions and has a belly laugh that warms my insides every time.
They are all so unique yet so AMAZING!
Making the Journal Layout
Inspiration or Lack Thereof…
I made this layout for my new art journal fashioned from a comic book. I haven’t named this journal as of yet but the theme so far is stenciled backgrounds and vintage photos from India.
I started off thinking this was going to be a Alice In Wonderland themed art journal. I stamped and cut out all my Alice themed stamps and covered the pages with paper. After making this first background, I struggled with finding placement for the Alice stamps. Nothing I tried was too my liking, so I tried some of the photos that I had been saving for my newly bound and massive art journal. These photos appealed to my eye so I will have to save the Alice themed Journal for another time.
My background was made using the StencilGirl Art Deco Borders. I used some embossing powder in various colors and a Pink Paislee stamp in the background. I added my photo because I thought I was done. But I still felt it needed more so I went back and added splashes of Distress Paints in brighter colors to finish it off.
I am a little late but I want to join Elizabeth for Tea Day!
Happy Week BEFORE Christmas!
