'be mine....'

Hello my lovely readers! I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day
filled with a lot of love and happiness :)
I was invited Guest Design this month by the blog
ART UP which also has an online shop.

'be mine' 

I used some old Prima paper that I thought would be perfect for a vintage page.
I added some texture with a stencil and some heavy white gesso, then I added
some pink acrylic paint and some Tim Holtz 'Tea Stain' to create a messy background.

Here is this month's moodboard:

....'my journey'....

Hello my crafty friends!
So I've been feeling quite stuck lately as I find myself in the new year 
being on only one Design Team. Without project requirements using certain materials,
I'm feeling about lost about what I want to create. I knew I wanted to make a simple
but textured page with some hope of this coming year being a positive and creative one!
I reached for some old 13 arts materials that I had left over, and the urge hit me to 
create something in yellow.... a happy and hopeful color.

'my journey'

I started with clear gesso all over the page, did some stenciling and then added some yellow
and black watercolors. I layered up some papers from the collection 'Aria Story'
and some 13arts transparent stickers. 

A few close ups:

I've also started a course to learn how to make my own art journal from scratch and 
so I'm excited to see where this new adventure takes me....what about you?
What are your crafty plans for 2019?
Thanks for looking,
Lisa xo
