Beach Bum Art Journal

I did a bit of playing around in my art journal last week. I was inspired by Mou's "Take the Challenge" on the Design Memory Craft blog. The challenge is to make something about a favorite destination. I chose the beach. :)

I started by mod podging a few gelli prints as a background, then I painted on top of them with gesso to tone  down the colors. I stamped with some of my spirograph stamps onto the page then I spray misted a couple of circles with yellow mister huey.
After a bit of doodling and journaling, I applied gelatos to the top edge of the page, misted them with water & let them drip down.
I love the look. :)

Have you done any art journaling or mixed media lately? What I love about art journaling is that there are so many different styles.

  1. Your mix media pages always look so pretty and effortless! It would take me forever to fill up a journal but I'm trying to fill up my SMASH book (slowing but surely) :)

  2. Fabulous layers & texture. It looks like so much fun!

  3. Gorgeous journal spread, love the colors and the layes are fabulous.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. <3 Oh my gosh. This is absolutely perfect. :D


I love your comments!
