Art Journal Challenge Week 7 – Old Books & Baby’s Breath

Week 7 of my 52 week challenge and I am liking what I see! This is the first page I have done that I really love. I am finding week by week, bit by bit, what I like and this week it all came together. Which is exciting because now I have a bit of direction.

I am finding that I like pretty simple pages. Not a whole lot of techniques and textures, just a bit of colour and my focus for that week. This week I knew I wanted to combine two things I love, one old and one new. Books and dried flowers.

I had an old, falling apart book of poetry by T.S. Eliot which I sacrificed to the journal gods, as well as the first batch of baby’s breath I have dried and pressed.

The rest of the page is simply one colour from the Dylusions Ink Spray range (Polished Jade), which I used to cover the entire page before lifting the colour off in places using water and two different stencils. Some basic stamping finished the background and I topped it off with my cut out book pages and the dried baby’s breath.
