Sparkle Year – Art Journal

This is your year to Sparkle! – I love all the possibilities that the new year brings, with maybe a fresh start and a burst of energy and enthusiasm.

For my background I used heavy body acrylic paints and white gesso, but also I used the Gold Gesso by Daniel Smith for some serious sparkle with my Art Nouveau Wallpaper and Art Deco Summit stencils.

 I hope you are ready to sparkle :)

Here are some supplies I used:

    What a lovely spread, it looks very oriental. I almost expect to see a stork flying by on the pages, very pretty.

    Love the effect of the gold – I too have Daniel Smith Gold Gesso but have not gotten the results you did – will give it another go. BTW, CJS2020 is phenomenal. Thank you for making it happen!

Is it Worth it? – Art Journal

“Is is worth questioning yourself by comparing yourself to others?” Never! Such a hard lesson to learn that I continue to work on. How about you?

I used my Art Deco Summit Stencil and then painted my figure over it with acrylic paints and adding black gesso surrounding her.

My quote I did in gold and white acrylic markers.

Dreamed – Art Journal

“Remember that once you dreamed of being exactly where you are now!” Maybe you have also reached some goals in life and are now living them? Sometimes we are so focused on what’s next that we don’t stop to see where we are. And hey, it is in a pretty good spot :)

I used Liquitex spraypaints, gouache and acralic paint on the back ground and on deli paper. Then I sprayed with white and black over my brandnew Art Deco Summit stencil and the formerly painted background.

Then I added an ink drawing and used a Fude pen for journaling.
