Art Journal

It's time for new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and our optional twist is a Recipe: Use 3 Embellishments; 2 Pattern Papers; 1 Image. 

This month we are showing our gratitude to all of our sponsors throughout 2018 in a Sponsor Showcase Month.  You will see us highlighting some of our favorite digis from our generous sponsors.  

This art journal highlights the lovely Copic colored image Pretty As a Picture from All Dressed Up.

I wanted to use this delightful image on the front of an art journal for my little grand-artist!  The journal is filled with all different types of paper to accommodate her medium of choice~ graph, multi-medium, cardstock, etc! I think this will make a wonderful Christmas gift for her!

The cover pattern paper, letters, and red paper is from another sponsor this month:  Polkadoodles.  The artist's palette (my 2nd pattern paper) is cut from paper from Whimsy.  The die cuts are from Cricut:  'I Arted,' 'Cursive,' and 'Bags, Tags, and Boxes.'  

I finished it off with 3 enamel brads to make the paints on the palette die cut.  

Off to the following Challenges:  

Crafty Friends Challenge:  Use 2 or more pattern papers
Cutie Pie:  Layers (I went with layers of paper and cardstock, dies, embellies, etc. to make this journal!)
Crafty Addicts:  AG w/optional theme make it girly
All Dressed Up:  Must use ADU Image
