'Follow Your Instinct'

Today in America we celebrate everything we are grateful for.....our family
our friends, and the chance to remind ourselves to appreciate everything that makes us happy.
I am so blessed with an amazing husband, my little boy who I love with all my heart,
and all the wonderful friends I have met along the path of my creative journey.

'Follow your Instinct'


It's super simple to create a little page like this, it's just a lot of layers. I cover a page in an old book with a really thick coat of heavy white gesso and then once that's dry, I cover it in a coat of clear gesso, then add some inks with a paint brush, some black stamping, apply more white gesso through a stencil, and then layer on some 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces, some flowers, brads and leaves, and you're done:)

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Viney Page Frame'
'Sharon's Butterflies'
'Frames Tiny Henri's'


The fiery colors of nature that surround us here in the South continue to 
inspire me so much and I wanted to capture those colors in my art journal.
I used some super gorgeous Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in:

'Bayou Boogie Gold'
'Cajun Carmellian Red'
'Glory of the Seas Gold'
'Hag Wart's Orange'


A big thank you to all my friends all over the world who visit my blog 
and make sharing art so fun,
Hugs, Lisa xo
