Inspiration – sparkly purples

I was hit with another episode of overwhelm after looking at lots of YouTube videos on creating layouts for mixed media art journals yesterday; I SO wanted to make something fantastic – yearned for it! Yet I just couldn’t decide last night where to start. I pulled out boxes and realised that I have HEAPS of stuff, so much of it forgotten about. Stuff here that could be used to create great pieces.

Today, I sat aside all those expectations of trying to create something WONDERFUL and committed to just making something! This is the result.

purple art journal layout


I started with a pre-painted background, with acrylic paints, some stamping and using my handmade stencil of the harlequin patters, I added impasto medium and added sparkles with the Fireworks purple / pink sprays.

Then I added washi tape, paper tags and text blocks, chipboard butterfly (white paint, fireworks sprays and “Fancy Flourishes” stamp by Kaiser Scrapbook, with Jet Black Stazon ink) and chipboard flowers. Plus a little doodling with pens and markers.
