Hi Journaling Friends,
I have been enjoying my weekend off with a trip to Ballarat yesterday, to see my sister and family, plus a bit more de-stashing of my craft space and some creative time today!
I wanted to create in my Vintage Art Journal and have another page done from Johanna’s class. This is about using your INTUITION in your art.
intuition – noun – (knowledge from) an ability to understand or know something immediately based on your feelings rather than facts:
For this challenge, I chose the photos just because I liked them. The happy face of the lady and the lovely little girl. I just created this layout following my feelings towards the photos and I just went from there. I think this picture reminded me of my mum in a photo of when she was 21 and had her whole life in front of her. She has been gone nearly 2 years and not a day goes by that I don’t think about and miss her and dad.
I have always created using colour as my go-to way of scrapping and other papercrafts. I was drawn to the Spearmint colour of Kaiser paint so I went with that and I just used stuff from my stash.
This page wasn’t planned at all, and I completed it in about 20 mins. I don’t go for perfection and I never measure anything so this was a lot of fun to make. I layered different papers and ephemera, washi tape, paint, ink and tissue paper. I made a small envelope from a book page to sit the smaller photo on and just layered and embellished as I like. The page flowed pretty easily and to finish I used a lace butterfly I coloured with paint and a few die cuts.
You will find Johanna’s class video “HERE” Hop on over and join in her great class, you will love it.
Stay tuned as I will be back tomorrow with a bit more of what I have been up to 🙂
