Art Journal Journey - New Year, New Adventure

Hello Friends! Here's another page for Erika's challenge on Art Journal Journey.

The background was an undersheet which was too beautiful to throw away, as were the papers that two of the hearts were cut from. I used a charcoal pencil to add shading, a white paint pen to add splatters, and a white gel pen to write a quote found on Pinterest. 'Spend your life with people who make even going to the grocery store an adventure'. I couldn't make out who the quote was by unfortunately.

Hope you're having a great weekend,

  5. OK, Alison, that just topped my list of fun, fun art I've seen today. Recycling a page/undersheet and turning it and other pieces into the fabulous hearts made my day. I fell in love with this, as well as the beautiful quote I'd never heard before. It's an all around great entry and reusing something always gets my heart pumping (grin). Thanks for sharing this gorgeous and recycled art journal piece with us at Art Journal Journey.

  6. Beautiful page and fabulous layering of colours/stamps almost as if it were meant -don't you love it when you can make something beautiful out of something that was "waste"

  7. Agreed. That background is definitely not a throw away piece. I have a thing for hearts and so this page is great in my book. Your pages are so full of joy and color. Got to love color. Thanks again for joining us at AJJ and I hope to see more of these fun colorful pages. Hugs-Erika
