SCRAPPING EVERYDAY MIRACLES
HOP into SPRING BLOG HOP!
MARCH 29th - 31st
Hi SEM Blog Hoppers! Christy here...and I'm super excited to be part of this
Hop into Spring Blog Hop !
The project I created to share with you this weekend is an Art Journal page.
For me Spring means rebirth, the flowers are popping up again, color is spreading all around. What once was dull and drab is full of promise and new beginnings.
Here is one closeup of the page. I used a Gelli Print as my base on watercolor paper.
The flowers were cut from a piece of Japanese Washi paper that I had been hoarding for a long time. They were highlighted with a white gel pen to pop more.
Black acrylic paint made the stems with more white gel pen on top.
Small letter stickers used for my quote, then outlined with a charcoal pencil & smudged so they weren't so white on the page.
What do you love most about Spring? For me it means warmer temperatures are on the way. I intensely dislike winter, it tends to be cold, rainy and grey. When the first buds pop up and the trees begin to show color again. It makes my heart happy.
Where do you live? Waxhaw,NC
Literally spitting distance from Charlotte but enough out of the way that we are still a small community based town. Birthplace to both Andrew Jackson and James Polk it has a unique place in political history. Close to the Nascar Hall of Hame brings another bit of cultural history to us.
