Art Journal Feature You Hold My Heart

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here with an art journal page. Before I get started, my first order of business today is to wish all the men folk out there a Happy Father’s Day!

I’ve created a super fun page today… more animated than I usually do. Take a peek. Bright and cheery right?

I’ve used my Dylusions Small Journal since my page is basically flat.  I had a blast with this one, building layers or papers… then adding in shading with Faber Castell Big Brush markers. I found my inspiration on Pinterest, but unfortunately I can’t find the person who created it to give them credit.

I used my stash of papers to create the trees, hills and background. Then I set a couple birds and a hand cut heart in the trees. I finished everything off with some slight doodling with a fine pen around the trees and hills to give them some definition.

I’ve shot a full process video for you, and as usual had to speed it up to fit it in the time allowed. Enjoy!

I have used papers from my stash but have listed several for you below that would work great for this project. Hope you have a great day!

  1. What a sweet art journal video! I have just begun an art journal of my own and this is so inspiring when I go “blank” for a journal idea. Thanks for sharing, Shari! Love it.
