Smile Often


Art Journalling has been around for ages but has never really tempted me because a lot of the creations I see are way too "messy" or "grungy" for my tastes. However this week while browsing the Journalling boards on Pinterest (my newest online time waster :o - loads of crafty inspiration) I discovered this artist and her fresh, clean style inspired me to have a go. As my drawing and lettering skills are not too hot, I created stencils to do the flowers and wording then painted with watercolour crayons. I added some gems and used my fineliner and some stardust pens to add the doodling. I'm quite pleased with end result and will probably be doing some other bits from time to time. Any how that's all for today, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Lovely card. Very fresh and clean looking as opposed to the grungy look. I must admit to liking the grungy look (as long as there aren't too many paper flowers) but can't do anything which looks good in my eyes. I'm off to look at the links :o)

My goodness Julie, you have so much talent. I love this card and agree that grunge can go a little over the top sometimes!
