some more Art journaling

OK.. so I am enjoying this art journaling... although kinda going my own way about it and still finding my groove/ style? or maybe my style is something eclectic! lol!

Here are the next two pages I have done....

Page No.2 - This was done the other night... I wondered how my copics would go directly onto the journal page... it's quite soft paper.. so it does soak in a bit... not something I would do every day.. but worth a try! lol!

I stamped Sweet Thinking Mae.. from Some Odd Girl with Memento Ink.. then coloured her with Copics... I added the butterflies and flowers in later with a multiliner.. although I kinda wish I had not done the flowers... too late though! I was pretty cold and sick of being sick... hence the "Bring on Spring"!

The next page ... Page No.3 is a bit more complicated... I painted the page white and used the end of my paintbrush to doodle some swirls in the paint whilst it was still wet... once it was dry I used my various inks... dropping the ink directly onto the page and then moving the page around to get the ink to drip/ move... it did move mostly into the grooves left from the paintbrush... so I did a few layers... for the sand I dropped on splotches and dabbed it with a wet one to make it look rougher! I then stuck on my images (coloured with Copics in Xpress It card) and added some extra dots here and there with Copics and multiliners ... It's a kinda sweet little scene.... I used Oliver and Amelia Summer Fun and the head of Blush Bonnie and the tail from Mermaid Anya all stamps from The Greeting Farm!

a closer look....

I think I was wishing a bit for some warmer weather still hehe!

I am going to enter this into the One Stop Craft Challenge - summer time!! :)
