Paris anyone?!

Paris anyone?!

I’ll be skimming under the wire with my day 4 post!!!  Forgot to do it up last night and post date it…..ooppsss.  So, I mentioned my Art Journal prompt cards my friend did in my last post and then naturally I had to make up a set as well!  We were at our cabin a few weeks ago and I needed some inspiration to create a page.  I dealt myself out 5 cards and then sat and looked at them…..oh boy.  I dealt myself out some doozies, so I thought.  Check them out!


Really?!  I decided to take the leap and give the prompts a try.Have you ever tried to apply gel medium to a page with your fingers and then try and adhere a napkin to the page with those said gel filled fingers…..it make for some good comedy I”m sure….if it wasn’t me struggling!!!  I also added a layer of a couple of magazine collage items and while everything was drying I proceeded to peel the multiple layers of gel medium from my fingers.  I used my favorite stencil, my bricks and tinted the Faber Castel Whipped Spackle with some grey Gelato to add another layer of texture.  Some light shading with my grey charcoal pencil, some highlights on the brick with a lighter grey Gelato to give the bricks a more dimensional look.  Stamped my image onto cardstock, inked the edges and ta daaaa!!!  A finished art journal prompt page.  🙂

Here it is!




I really like how this page turned out…..all in shades of grey.

That’s it for day four of the 90-days of blogging challenge.  So far so good!!

As always, I thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and love hearing from you while you’re hear.  Feel free to follow me if you don’t already.  And be sure to check out the other girls blogs who are playing along.
