New Beginning

Helen Keller said, "The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." To me, that is Art! I aim to spread positivity, happiness and encourage my viewers to believe in themselves.

And here's what I created. A journal page with a positive message.

On a linen paper, created a background wash with Seedless PreservesSpiced Marmalade and Lucky Clover Distress Oxides. Sprinkled water and removed excess with tissue paper. 

Using same colours, Dusty ConcordeFossilised Amber, Lucky Clover Distress inks and Tim Holtz Flourish and Splash Stencils, added a little interest to the background.

Recently I bought this Prima Stamp and was itching to use it. So stamped the image of Prima Princess Stamp Alexis with Black Archival ink on a white cardstock and fussy cut the same. Coloured the image with Zig markers

Wrote my sentiment and adhered all to the layout.

Added Rubber Dance Old book stamp with Cobalt Archival ink and design from Mendhika stamp set  with Red Geranium Archival ink on the background to bring the additional effect. 

Voila!!! My journal spread is ready.
