How an art journal page evolved

I’d like to show you how many changes and layers there can be in an art journal page. For me the process is unpredictable. A little planning always gets me started but this can be simply the decision to start the first layer with blues and the next with a warm opposite colour.

On this page I also wanted to use some of the Martha Stewart Crafts paper stencils and a laser cut ornament (the cross) from one of Michaels exclusive bands–ArtMinds. The laser cut cross is meant to be used as a Christmas ornament but I don’t celebrate Christmas. I did however see some exciting use of the cross as a stamp or even a stencil.
