"Find Beauty" Art Journal Page Angie Coomber
Hello arty friends, how are you doing?
I have not done any proper art journaling for ages and remembered that I really liked these circle design pages so decided to have a play with some autumn colours.
I started by clear embossing some circles on my page.
Next I very lightly sketched a circle on my page and followed this up with my Distress Crayons. I usually draw my lines and then smudge them with my fingers, using a bit of water.
I used the same colour crayons to add some mark making. I thought the marks looked a bit harsh so smudged them a little.
The next step was to add some stamping using black Archival ink, as well as some magenta paint splatter and marks made with a gift card .
I added some white mark making to make the colours pop a bit more.
I stamped my focal image onto a piece of gelli print, cut it out and glued it onto the page, together with a quote.
I have to tell you that I wasn't very happy with this page at the beginning, but often it's worth persevering and you end up with something you do like!
Until next time,
hugs from Angie x
