Hello scrappy friends! Nicole here and today I'm sharing two spreads in my art journal that feature the composition book and mist available in the Dina Wakley Explore & Learn Series Kit available in the shop! This kit includes one of Dina's composition books with prints of her artwork, a white Gloss Spray and her Scribble Sticks!
My first spread (left) uses a silhouette from the book along with scribble sticks and a few of the dylusions acrylic paints. I also used some markers from my stash to add highlights of purple, black and pink to the figure. Once dry, I added loose writings to the left of the page us phrases like "be happy," "be trustworthy," "be open," "be creative." etc. Just a few as a reminder of who I want to be as a person.
The second page (right) uses the heavier weight paper in the composition book and I used it to add in an insert to my journal. For this page, I used a stencil and Vicki Boutin Molding Paste that are available in the Explore & Learn Series: Basic Textures kit. The floral image was a cut out from a magazine that I have and I added highlights with markers after it was adhered to the page. This helps add more dimension and it takes away from the natural look, which is what I was going for. It helps the image feel more cohesive with Dina's art work.
Here are a few other close ups of my pages. You'll see that I ended up creating a pocket behind the left page (by gluing two pages together) and added one of Dina's tags from her composition book.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you've been inspired!
