Art Journal - Possibilities

Hello Everyone,

Use Pastel colors is the theme of challenge at Simon Says Monday blog. As I always use vibrant colors, this was an opportunity to create something with different colors.
Here is my double page journal,

This is an old book I am using as a journal recently. You will find text in the background.
I created wall with layers of paper strips. Some more layers are added with Gesso, texture paste, stenciling. I've used only watercolors for these pages. Cute birdie is from Tim's Birds Crazy collection. All flowers and leaves are from Prima.
I loved how it turned out and I am happy I used pastel colors for this... :)


Thanks so much for stopping by.

  12. This is nothing short of fabulous! I had to smile when I read your post because I'm the exact same way! I love bright bold colors, so it was kind of tricky for me to tone it down to pastels! But this shows that you are incredible skilled at pastels, too! I love how you used such soft colors, but still left the piece full of energy and vibrancy! I love how the book text peeks though the background and your blending the paper strips in, too. It is elegant and sophisticated and I love how our eye is drawn diagonally across the page with all of the lovely corner embellishments. This is definitely a page you should be proud of and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
