Happy New Year! I hope 2014 brings all that you wish for.
I have been doing a bit of art journaling everyday for 10 mins after being inspired by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer;s blog. It's part of my step away from the computer resolution I started late last year. I found I spent too much time looking and no actual producing. I also prefer Instagram as well as it's so quick to share things instead of blogging.
This art journal page was inspired by the A Sprinkle of Imagination December colour challenge here.
When I first saw it I was like no not got an idea and dismissed it. However when I was experimenting with my oil pastels last week in my 10 minute play I realised that I had actually used some of the palette already and then this page was born. The base is some Adirondack ink left over from a stencil I used and the problem was that I couldn't use anything water based otherwise it bled. When I was using the oil pastels on another page I realised they worked really well at blending and left the ink intact. I used three of the colour palette the orange, yellow and purple pastels on top of the Adirondack ink. I then used black Stazon and some stamps from Glitz and Unity. There was also some sequin waste and some black oil pastel for the background. Finally I stamped my Stampotique girl out and coloured her in with my distress markers and used the fourth palette colour of mauve. The quote is from my Pinterest word board. Thanks for a great challenge and making me think out of the box. Pop over here and join in the challenge.
