I'm starting this post a little embarrassed. As I'm sure you might have noticed already, both of my journal pages have the same quote. I made them for the Color Me Positive art journal challenge and they have a different quote each week.
When I made them, I was working on them at the same time plus a couple of other things. I guess the quote got stuck in my head.
But I decided to share them both anyway because I worked hard on them. And I hope you enjoy them as well.
I'll go over week 6 first. It was the week the quote belonged to. The challenge was to do some stamping.
I started this page by punching squares out of random scrap paper I had:
I glued them to my page using mod podge:
I ended up choosing the black color to fill in the space between rows of squares:
On a separate piece of paper, I painted it black. When it was dry I painted a layer of sparkle podge:
I punched stars out of the black, sparkly paper:
I glued them to the center of my squares:
While that dried, I stamped the words of the quote on white cardstock:
After I cut them out and glued them to my page, I went around the edges with a green, metallic gel pen:
And that's it. This page was pretty simple.
Now for my page with the wrong quote.
The quote that was supposed to go with it was:
Wherever you go,
go with all your heart.
And the challenge was to collage.
And so I found some collage elements I wanted to use online and printed them
I used a Saran Wrap technique to make my background:
I used acrylics to paint my flower stems:
I glued on my elements to my page and went around them with a gel crayon. I smudged the colors so they'd blend:
I wrote the quote by hand. Too bad it was the wrong one😁
