All of Me Loves All of You – Art Journal

I guess I have spring feelings- LOL. I love this – “All of Me Loves All of You” .

This was a quick but fun spread using different acrylic spray paints over three different stencils.

I like how the stencil pattern of Santa Fe, Granada and Mesa Verde look so good together – I want a blanket with this :)

I added the journaling with a Fude pen and stamped with the Love Tag stamp into the heart.

To define the heart a bit more I traced it with some Artgraf Pigments -dry and wet.

I think I found a new color combination I like :)

    This page looks 3D. It seems to me like I am looking thru a screen and there are some lovely orange flowers and then the sky. The sky looks far away – 3D to me!!! Orange is my favorite color and that deep sky blue looks so yummy with it here. I REALLY am enjoying this journal creations Nat. Thanks bunches for your inspiration! Xj.

    I love my Fude pens and the color combo of rust and blue has been a fav of mine. I wouldn’t have thought to use the purple with it but I like it.

      sue, that is so true- it was a surprise for me too how much I liked the color combination. It is fun to sometimes try out new things – this is a good reminder for me :)

Kind Heart – Fierce Mind – Brave Spirit

Pretty much how I want to feel right now with everything!

This spread started out as a demo page at my workshops in San Jose in January . I actually showed how to use spray paints with stencils and we used some Montana water based spray which I really fell in love with. They have a matte finish – and the look is so different from the look of the more shiny glossy finish of my Liquitex Spray paints. Plus…they come in those mini spray cans! I am still debating if I should buy those…because I do have…enough …spray paint…but ….you know ;)

I used the Versailles Stencil on the left and the Buenos Aires Stencil on the right. I added some of the background color and added it with my finger to the middle top, smoothing it out and bringing both sides together by journaling over that part.

This page makes me happy – happy memory from the process of making it and my awesome students , happy colors and good message :)

      So glad you like it Julie! Go get your time :) Even if it is only 10 minutes a day- I am always surprised how much you can actually do in just 10 minutes ….the downside is …many paint splatters on clothes that are not meant for painting “oh ….I am dressed for going out but hey…only 10 minutes and I should not get paint on my clothes” yeah – sure ;)
