This is my first blog post as part of the Scrapping Wonders Design Team. I love to art journal, collage and write and wanted to give it a try on one of the shop’s inserts. I decided to go ahead and make an art journal spread around my word for 2018: SAVOR. This is my third year choosing one little word (olw) for the year. This year I decided I wanted to savor and enjoy all the little moments of my days.
I started out by gathering my art supplies that I thought I would use and got out my B6 Traveler’s Notebook insert from the shop. This insert has Vellum Bristol paper.
I used Mod Podge, Jane Davenport watercolors, Washi from r.atelier.com, Tim Holtz distress spray and ink pad, a stencil and ephemera I had on hand.
I started out stenciling then adding color with the distress ink spray and watercolor.
On the left side of the spread I used Mod Podge to lay down a torn napkin. While that dried I distressed a small envelope and paper to write about my word for the year. I added a dotted vellum paper, ribbon and string behind the envelope, then added a large sequin heart and the word, Savor.
On the right side of the spread I glued a picture of comfy looking chair and foot stool down, glued a bit of fabric, distressed a quote card and placed it near the top and attached a fabric butterfly to the card. Then I added a bit of washi to the page to complete it.
It was a fun way to journal my word for the year and the paper took it well. I look forward to doing more art journaling in this insert. You can watch the process video here:
