New Beginings

Hello  my dear lovely crafty friends, Welcome back to my blog. 

A very warm good morning to you all. How are you all doing?? How is the weather at your place?? Stay safe nd enjoy the Sunday.

In Instagram there is a weekly art journal challenge going on. It is conducted by Michelle Schratz @raspberrybluesky is her Instagram handle. She has started this #52weeksartjournal from January 4th and every Monday she will give a new prompt. I never took any art journal weekly so from this year I have started to take part in it.

On January 4th prompt was New Beginings so I have created an simple page in my new journal book which I have kept on for this 52 Weeks Art Journal and every week I will share my weekly page here on blog also. If you want regular updates on my art journal then please do visit my Instagram account which I have created only for Art Journal, my Instagram account name for Art Journal is @adventures_in_art_journal 

Here is my first page of the first week,

First I coloured my background using Distress Oxides and blending brushes from Tim Holtz. 

Next I did stencilling on it using a round lacey stencil and Walnut Strain Distress Oxide and blending foam. 

Now I took my favourite Dylusion College element sheets and fussy cut few images. 

Next I placed it on background and once I was happy with the placement, then I adhered it on my journal page and added few Chitchat stickers and outlined it with archival pen.

Hope you like it. Please do give me feedback so that I can improve myself more.

  2. What a great way to start that challenge. I was unable to see it on Instagram because I'm only on blogger, but I am so glad you shared it here, too. I like how you used the stencil and the lady behind the flower looking at the other ladies. This is an incredible first page for this challenge and it's also wonderful that you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey, too. Thank you for so many wonderful entries this month.
