'Winter's Frost'

Good morning friends....I hope you are all having a lovely weekend....

I am dropping in to share another art journal spread I created for the new March 
challenge over at Words & Painterly.

'winter's frost'

I have admired art journals for quite some time now and I am so happy that I finally started one of my own. I love the smaller format and the rich texture of old book pages, a little heavy gesso to prep and the possibilities become endless! 

Here is the color palette for this months challenge...

For more information of this month's challenge please go here....
And to join in on the Words & Painterly facebook page please go here....

Here are a few close ups...

I started with heavy gesso through one of the new Prima stencils 'Dots and Stripes' and then added some pieces of a paper doily and a few scraps of white gauze and lace. I really loved how the dark blue mist really soaked into the doily and created a beautiful pattern. Once that was all dry I did some stamping with some new Finnabair stamps, 'Honey Comb' and 'Messy'.

For color I used several Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.....'Danny Zuko's Denim, 'Hydrangea Blue', 'Tea Pot Purple' and 'Autumn Maple Crimson'.  I also used some 13@rts silver glitter paint which gave a nice little bit of sparkle.

I will try to do a step by step tutorial the next time I do an art journal page, just to show how uncomplicated and fun it really is....I love not knowing what is going to really is a great way to experiment with your mediums and have fun.

Hugs, Lisa xo
