Light-hearted Art Journal Page

I Believe in Pink

Usually, my art journal pages are expressions of serious/heavy thinking. I had this little quote card in my stash, and I decided to throw together a light-hearted page. Normally, I would not start a discussion with “I believe in pink.” But sometimes it’s good to lighten up a bit! Guess which part of the “statement” caught my husband’s eye immediately!

It was fun to tear apart portions of my First Gelli Plate Trials (pictured in an earlier post) to use as a starting point for this page (adhering them on top of a background of light blue and light green acrylic paint). I used my Vagabond to cut the sewing room images from chipboard (covered them with washi tape). I used a lot of acrylic paints and stamps with archival ink.

Love the dressform! The use of the gelli plate is cool! Can't wait to see what else you do with it!
