I love all things Celtic and St. Patrick’s Day’s approaching, so I’d love to share this journal page with you:
Again, it’s a very ‘clean’ pair of pages and there’s no writing involved, so for some of you it might not qualify as an ‘art journal’. I tend to see my visual journal as a kind of personal playground. Sometimes, I just want to dedicate pages to subjects I like, play with stamps I love, practise techniques and explore colour combinations. It was actually the Art of Moodling who inspired me in trying the colour combo green, silver and gold and in using heat embossing in my journal. The Irish blessings (The Stampsmith) and the Celtic knotwork and Celtic Crosses (Make Your Mark) are heat embossed. The background is sponged with different shades of green Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint).
This is my entry for the following challenges:
- StampInsanity’s Holy Guacamole
- One Powerful Hour: Green
- Take a Word: Green
- Inspiration Avenue: Happy St Patrick’s Day.
Sorry for combining so many challenges, but I like them all and I’m really short of crafting time these days!
