Art Journal – page 2, LOVE..

Posted by on February 10, 2014

Welcome back on this beautiful Queensland day.. The weather is perfect for crafting.. lol..

Its a bit wet outside, but lovely and cool.. Hunter and I are home today, just chilling.. Catching up on some housework, baking and some crafting later..

So anyway, I wanted to share with you the latest addition to my Art Journal.. challenge #3 was to create our second page (remember the first challenge was to do the cover)…  Theme was LOVE.. Also had to use a Heart and use either a Pink or Red base.. Finally we had to journal about what LOVE means to us..

I chose NOT to journal on this page, but instead to add the photo of myself with my two boys.. They are my loves, they are the meaning of Love to me.. And as they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words”… lol..


Of course having an addition to Pink came in handy during this page.. I was in my element! :)

There is soooooo much that I did to this page, that I couldn’t possibly remember everything.. But I’ll point out some of my favourite features.. :)

I started off with Gesso-ing the whole page.. Spraying with some Red and Pink mists, then using a spatulas, spreading the colours over the page to cover the background base..

I tore up a 6×6″ pattern paper into small squares and pasted to the background under where my photo would sit..

I added LOTS of silver glitter, much more than I had first envisioned, but it turned out really cool.. lol..

Put some Washi tape down, wrapped the 3 colours of bakers twine around the page, then stuck my photo down..

I added that gorgeous flower and Kaiser chipboard heart that I coated with silver ink..

Final touches were the small flowers, punched heart shape in top right corner and the word “LOVE” made with Thickers..


Thank you for allowing me to share this page with you today.. I’m LOVING making this Art Journal so much I’m thinking of starting another one, just for me to create with… Not a group challenge one, just me and my style.. lol..
