My first art journal page!
Though, it took me about half a year to complete. I really don’t remember what I did to the background. I gesso’ed the page, and then, just added lots of blues, purples, and black acrylic paints. There are multiple layers of paint because I kept re-doing it and re-doing it. There is some shimmer, too. For the stars, I mixed some light gold acrylic paint (I believe it was Jacquard) with Golden light molding paste. This was actually my first time using molding paste, so it’s kind of a mess. But, it’s ok. I still think it turned out ok. 🙂 The streaks kind of look like the tails of shooting stars (or at least, that’s what I pretend they are!) 🙂 I used a Studio Calico stencil.
For the grass, I tore out a page of an old children’s book about God. I used all the green gelatos to color it, and then modpodged it onto the bottom. I put the lyrics to “God is so good” along the top of the “grass” with a Sakura white gel pen. I didn’t plan it out, but, amazingly, the lyrics fit perfectly twice~
The silhouettes on the bottom left are supposed to be my little family – me, K, and J. 🙂 I drew it with a Prismacolor black marker.
This page signifies last year for me – God has truly been good to me, and to us (our family). K has been and continues to be an amazing husband, and now an awesome father. J was born, and although it was tough at times, he is a sweet, happy, and very hyper little boy. I couldn’t have asked for more.
Some close ups:
Unfortunately, I really don’t remember the products I used for this project. I will be better in the future!
