I am on the last couple of pages in my Art Journal and this weekend I took to doing what I love most……..painting! My art journal is my personal playground for ideas. Sometimes I share the creative process and sometimes I just share the completed pages like I did yesterday. Today I have some step outs of a page I painted last night.
- Gesso background with Decoart Media Gesso (White)
- Background DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics (Diarylide Yellow, Hansa Yellow Medium & Pyrrole Orange)
- Stencil Andy Skinner Stencil with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic (Pryrrole Red)
- Blend in more DecoArt Fluid Acrylics (Pyrolle Red, Pyrrole Orange, Cadmium Orange Hue and Diarylide Yellow)
- Tear Flowers out of book text and adhere together with DecoArt Matte Medium
- Color flowers with DeocArt Fluid Acrylics and Spray with DecoArt Gloss Sealer – Distress all edges with Memento Black Ink Pad
- Adhere flowers to page with Beacon 3-in-1 and draw stems/flowers with DecoArt Media Gesso (Black)
- Adhere Buttons to centers of flowers with Beacon 3-in-1
- Print Title on white paper and adhere with DecoArt Media Matte Medium to complete page.
Really love how this turned out…….

Sometimes you will not be able to see where you are going; every step will seem uncertain. But know that as long as you follow your intuition and take baby steps, your soul’s inner GPS will guide you home. You will find that you will be the right person, at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing on point. Trust your instincts. Relax. You know what to do. Living is about learning as you go. And remember, living is risky business. Every decision, every interaction, every step, every time you get out of bed in the morning, you take a small risk. To truly live is to know you’re getting up and taking that risk, and to trust yourself to take it. To not get out of bed, clutching to illusions of safety, is to die slowly without ever having truly lived.”

Love this Tracy – so pretty. And I do appreciate your tutorials so much. I really have more than a blank page – I have a blank mind!! But I love this so much I cannot quit.
I am so glad! I love to share in photos and video! Hope this inspires you!
