Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Colors of Fall

Welcome, everyone! It’s Shari Carroll here with an art journal feature where I’m working in the Dina Wakley white 6×6 journal and celebrating some of the amazing colors of Fall.

I’ve selected about 6 Distress ink colors that feel like fall to me to stamp the leaves and to add as splatters to the blue background.

I don’t usually do a two-page journal spread but thought it would be a good reminder to have small swatches of the colors I used to reference later.

  1. I have to tell you that I’m not usually fond of mixed media but you sure are winning me over. I loved these pages. That was ingenious on how you created the wreath shape. All of this reminded me of Victorian for some reason. Thanks for showing us how you created this masterpiece.

  2. Shari, this is an absolutely gorgeous journal entry. Love how you you showed the color samples on the left and the beautiful wreath on the right. What a masterpiece of colors you used for the background and the wreath itself. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

  3. Wow I have never had an interest in art journaling. But I love mixed media and you inspired me to try this one d aww y. Your art journal is spectacular. Absolutely beautiful.
