Say hello to the art journaling - mini scrapbook album hybrid. Merging stories from our recent trip to Hawaii, favorite photos and my foray into mixed media was the goal. I created small canvases (3-1/2"x3-1/2") for my first attempt at art journaling. I figured keeping it small would be helpful for a beginner. I used watercolor paper and gesso to prep the pages and then went at it with acrylic paint.
The beautiful London Felicity Jane kit was the answer that I needed to combine it all together. The colors for the art journaling squares came directly from the color palette of the kit. I love to draw inspiration from products and kits for color palettes. And this one worked beautifully for these pages. The London Stamp set was used throughout the pages to add text and a floral design to the project.
As a long time scrapbooker, it's so nice to stretch creatively with a project like this. I'm a neat freak by nature so the messy nature of art journaling is something that I had to get over. I'm glad that I took the leap and tried something new, because I really love the end result. It was messy, but that's what water and soap are for.
I ended up with a meaningful little book filled with favorite photos and art from my heart! There's stamping, art journal squares, pockets of confetti goodness and chipboard inside.
Take a closer look at Felicity Jane kits. They are often my best source of inspiration. These are beautiful, cohesive kits and you won't be disappointed.
