Be Open...

Hello Everyone! I wasn't feeling inspired to art journal today, so I watched a couple of Tiffany of SouthernGalsDesigns' videos on YouTube. I love her free and easy style! I decided to use my gelliprint journal, so I already had something on the page, then shuffled my playing card prompts. I used about 8 cards. I already had some PaperArtsy Fresco acrylics on my desk, so I used those. Then I found a great Tim Holtz quote sticker which was perfect...'Be open to whatever comes next', and this is the result.

Happy Friday,

Alison xox


  1. A fabulous colourful page, made me happy seeing the bright patterns and super quote.

  2. That is a very inspired piece. I LOVE the colors. They make me happy to look at them just like Yvonne said in her comment. Not copying her, it is just true. Have a great weekend. Hugs-Erika

  3. I agree with Erika. The journal page is wonderful and SOOOOOOOO colorful. The colors spoke to me, and I was most impressed with the sentiment, too. You really WERE open to what would come next. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey. It's a lovely, and quite colorful entry.

    I started to watch the YT video but have bookmarked to watch later as the titles of her other videos looked very appealing to me - thanks for all the inspiration today and thanks once again for sharing what inspired you and joining in at AJJ.
    Have a lovely weekend.. not sure what the weather is, but sunny and warm here at present :)
