Find Comfort: Art Journal Page

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s Shari here bringing you an Art Journal inspiration.

Do you ever stumble with a starting point for your backgrounds on your pages? I do sometimes, there are many techniques to try, so many paints and products to use that my mind spins out of control. I dialed things back a bit for todays page and used some pattern paper for my inspiration.

I have to say, I think this is one of my favorites so far.

I love the warmth of the colors especially for this time of year…and of course the Bird and the Branches!

  2. I love this page and all the other pages too! Your art journals are truly inspiring! Thanks so much Shari!!

  3. Dina Wakley’s bird stamp set is one of my favorite stamp sets. I have used mine on several canvases. I just love your journaling page that you shared with us today.

  4. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes of this page! Love the bird stamp and the idea to use stain spray for water coloring.

  5. I am a sucker for bird images so this stamp set is on my Christmas list! Always helps my hubby and kids since they never know what to get me! Shari’s journal page is gorgeous! love the background too!
