So I have 3 more pages to share from the art journal swap that I’m participating in.

First is Mindy’s journal:

Mindy’s theme was ‘art’.  The skirt was done using molding paste and a stencil.  I love this quote.

Next is Amy’s journal:

Her theme is ‘Dreams and Treasures’. The background was done using scrapbook paper that was all different maps.  It’s been covered in red oxide liquid acrylic and some rust liquid acrylic.  I created the saying using masking fluid before I painted the pages.

And Beth’s journal:

Her theme was ‘love’.  I had issues with coming up with how I wanted to interrupt this.  I tried a couple of different things, in fact there are a couple layers under this that you can’t even see.  I started off by using  a stamp that looks like text, then created some shapes in the corners with a stencil.  The I tried using a different stencil and did NOT like the result.  That’s when I created the heart and Love with masking fluid and covered in a pearl blue paint.  Then I put down the quote using letter stickers, then stamped over the top with a bronze fluid acrylic.  Once it was dry, I pulled off the stickers and masking fluid.
