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!
