Long absence...

Hello everyone!!!! 

It's been a very long time since I've posted on my blog. Life just got in the way and I wasn't able to blog the way I wanted to do so even though I was able to get some art done once in a while. I'm happy to have a few spare moments today and decided it was time to update my blog. 

Although I am primarily a card maker, I have been enjoying mixed media art more and more,dedicating two mixed media journals to art journaling. Journal art really does allow me to create the way I want to..not having any specific plan, just a purpose to create. Journal art also allows me the opportunity to explore and experiment with so many mediums available on the market. I am just loving the whole process and all of the possibilities.

This particular project was inspired by a video I watched on YouTube about a month ago. I thought it was absolutely amazing and so I recreated it with my own twist. I really love the texture and dimensions from all the products used and I am thrilled with the end result!

The background was created using black chalkboard paint, a stencil, and modeling paste. The "say cheese" was stamped on chipboard, colored with Faber Castell gelatos and outlined with a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen. The colored camera is a stamp from Unity Stamp Company.

I hope that you like this as much as I do!!! I do have other projects I have completed and I will be posting those over the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
