Oooo, I'm not ready for that yet, are you?
Hello, my friends. The idea for this art journal spread came from a challenge by Julie and Nathalie called Take the Second Floor Challenge, which is a challenge to push yourself out of your box. This time the challenge is to use white card stock.
My pages were painted in some colors I didn't like, so I went over them with gesso, white acrylic paint and more gesso. After all of that, you would think they would be white - but not so. So I just used a sponge with bashful blue ink and added some blue. Not too much, though, because I wanted to keep the background pretty white.
Then I used white card stock and die cut a bunch of snowflakes with three different sets of Spellbinders dies, which I've had for a long time and not used any of them before. It was time for them to see some action. I also embossed and sponged them with bashful blue ink, so they would stand out a little from the background.
It was hard to not add more color, since I usually like something that will really pop on the page.
I searched online for a quote pertaining to snow and finally found one I liked, so I printed it out and added it to my spread.
This is a really different spread for me with so little color. I don't like how the snowflakes blend into the background. Thanks so much for stopping by.
