I finally decided on a “project” for this year. (about time, right?) This new art journal is going to be a continuation of my Alpha Journal. When looking up quotes for my alphabet-themed journal, I discovered some “number“ quotes I liked. I first meant to have my alphabet and number pages in one journal but it got too bulky so I decided on a separate journal. This decision was made many months ago, but I guess I just needed some impulse to get going. (and it finally came this week)
This is the first page:
I was inspired by Darcy's journal page in her Journalling Month series over at PaperArtsy blog. She started her page with a collage of various scrap papers that she'd stamped on. I had a pile of experimental gelli plate prints on deli paper and I didn't know what to do with them.
I also liked Darcy's colour combination. I first applied some Distress Paints in various shades of purple and green.
Then I collaged my scrap pieces.
