Laine Fairy Art Journal Page

Happy Happy Thursday My Dear Sweet Friends

I don't know about you but I am so ready for the weekend.  I am hoping to have plenty of time to create and maybe even take a nap.  What about you?  What are your weekend plans?


I have been working on my first Art Journal Page and I am so delighted to be finished. I actually have my first two page done but still have many empty pages to fill up. 

 It was fun and yet stressful because it felt like no matter what I did - I just couldn't get everything I wanted to use to fall into place.  As usual I was worried I would do something to mess it all up but when I made a mistake - I just used more Gesso.  How cool is that?  I find it so liberating. 

I am so thrilled at finally starting my personal Art Journal and I am really looking forward to all the different pages I will be creating and the finished journal as well.

I used a lot of different techniques in creating this page.  I have a list with everything written down and as soon as I get my mess cleaned up I will come back and post everything I used.  And that includes all the copics colors too.

(Update October 1st - I actually put everything away and threw out the sheet of paper with all the Copic colors I used as well as my other project notes.  Man oh man do I feel horrible).  

The image I used is one I commissioned with Betty, owner of Simply B Stamps. She actually made two images for me. This one of me as a fairy and the other of me as a police officer.  I just love her creations. I will be sharing my police officer art page as soon as I am finished.

I really appreciate your stopping by and your comments make my day. 
With hugs and smiles
