Step by Step Art Journal Page

Art Journaling is one of the things that just calls me for no reason
Even though I think there is a self healing reason
or a therapy involve during the process of making art.


Like always we start with a blank page


I decided to add a green watercolor to it
why? I really don't know is just what I felt like at that moment :)


Then I put some Faber Castell Gelatos that my daughter gave me for Christmas
and boy! I love them :)


I just put some random lines just like you see here, nothing to it 


Then, I spread the colors with my fingers
which I run through a baby wipe first for a little moist.
Once spread this is what it looks like


I added some arrows using a stencil
(that's what I am holding with my fingers there)


using a yellow gel pen


after that I decided to use an arrow stamp
using the same Faber Castell Gelatos
just by rubbing it n the stamp


spraying a little bit of water to it
before putting it on the paper




I saw that my corners looked a little naked to me
so I spread some more gelatos on the corner
with a wet brush ( the same that comes with the gelatos)


Again I decided to use a stamp



Now for the middle of the page
I took an old ripped children's book
and cut out what I liked
(recycle baby, recycle lol)


Arrenged it on the page how I liked it


Cut the excess if you want to


and doodle around the cut out :)


Now that still looked naked to me
so I stamped some words


and hearts all around using the same gelato technique




And there is my complete page again :)


I hope you like it
I hope you learned something new

Any suggestions just let me know
I am very open minded :)

Love,
