This little art journal page
was a learning experience for me.
I decided to be daring and do something different,
let me explain...
for the background I used one of the pages of my gratitude journal
glued ripped texted paper randomly here and there.
while that was drying I started making the cupcake
on a separate paper
I used a big index card where I sprayed some paint
and as you can see I used a read cupcake liner to make this project
the next step was painting the cupcake part
and outline it with white scribble paint
now... mistake #1 not waiting for this part to dry
mistake #2 taking pictures with my crappy cell phone lol
then as you can see here my cupcake is tilting
so I redid the cupcake liner to make it straight
mistake #3 looking for perfection in my art
(something I have never done before :/)
I cut it out and put it on my gratitude journal background
which it wasn't planned that way by the way :)
so here is mistake #4 not letting everything dry completely
before cutting all around the cupcake; it was wet, heavy and flimsy.
and here is my final product
mistake #5, since it was still wet
I couldn't turn the cupcake part around to apply glue on it
so I applied the glue on my background - big mistake -
now that is dry you can see the shining from the glue :/
Oh well, my art is done, perfect of not lol
and I had to show it to you since it took so much effort
and share my learning experience so all the beginners out there
don't make the same mistake.
So I am going to call this #artjournal page
