eyes of gratitude art journal page

I have a second art journal challenge that I am working on this year called Colour Me Positive. There are weekly prompts (so far both are quotes) and I'm hoping to be able to create most of them. Wish me luck! I'm not sure if I can handle two art journal challenges per week or not, but I will try. They may not make it all to the blog, but I plan on adding them all to Instagram. Feel free to find me there if you are interested!

This was week one's entry. I layed down 3 colors of gelato (blues and green) and blended. Over top of that I added a coating of a gesso and clear embossing paste. I blended gray gelato on the edges of the pages. Then came the stamps. And finally the quote was applied with stickers.


This did not end up at all like I anticipated it would. It just kinda took a life of it's own. I'm still not sure if it's done yet. But close enough anyway!

I'm also linking up to:
 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge to use something new (the flower stamp)
Unity Weekly hop - You Are Important and Dream Big stamp

Thanks for stopping by!
