Collect Beautiful Moments - Journal Panel

Just stopping by with a quick journal panel that I made some time ago. It now belongs in my 'blessed' journal, it makes me feel so happy that I am able to spend time with my art and have been so blessed to have learnt so much in the past 10 years or so and am able to share what I do with others. It really is an important part of my life now.

Process Steps
Paint a media paper panel with a light coat of gesso.
When it is dry stamp using a largish background stamp using archival ink. I used a stamp platform to help me get a fairly good image over the gesso.
Stamp a small but pretty text stamp with watering can archival ink, lightly and randomly over the background.

Create some age by blending a little ground espresso distress ink over the panel also blend some around the edges. Spritz with water and dry with a heat gun.
Add a small collage with a photo booth vintage picture.

Die-cut a couple of wildflower stems from core'dinations paper, edge with brown distress ink and flick with white gesso.

Add a flower ephemera piece and some words.

The paint behind the panel on the kraft page was just a mop up from a different project, simple but it fitted the bill perfectly colour wise.

I have made quite a good start with a few journal pages this year and I have promised myself I will do more so that I can keep my art safe. Trying to keep canvasses, altered art, tags and media boards are so much harder to store. I currently have three journals on the go so we'l see what happens.

As always thank you so much for taking some time to stop by and ....

The panel looks right at home on the kraft page - the warm blush of the rosy tones is so beautiful, and you can feel the happy vibe right through the computer screen.
