This year, I was quite lazy and did not create many Art Journal pages.
But it happened that I got a whole bunch of old, I think you say vintage, photo albums. Full of old photos. I took the photos out and stored them separately, for further use (already used some, hehe).
The albums have nice thick paper, perfect for art journaling. And I can use them for different themes or occasions, as I have quite a number now.
The first one I started for Rubber Dance as I thought, it might be a good idea, keeping things nice and separate.
My friends dog recently got very sick and had to be operated. All this worrying and concern about the poor dogs wellbeing gave me the idea for this page. As I took some step by step photos I will show them to demonstrate how I work.
The beginning always looks like an accident, then it emerges and becomes a picture.
But see for yourself. Watch out for the stamp work, because I use the stamps a lot with acrylic paint and lift paint off on some place to transfer it to another place. If you have questions, don´t hesitate to ask me.
Here now is the finished painting.
I stamped her beautiful skirt with Flourishes, Grunge Swirls in the sky, Vintage Script on the right and Grunge Swirls and Diamonds in the background.
