2019 #6 Fish: Journal with LPC {by Kate Yetter}

2019 Topic 6: Fish

I love Kate's journal cover layers, and this one is very fishy and beachy with shades of gold and blue ~Leandra

Hi everyone, it's Kate with you today, and I'd like to share a layout that I made for my daughter's art journal.

Art journaling is something I love because I love layering stamped images to create depth.

Backgrounds are the bare bones of your project. A background can either add or detract from the finished piece. I prefer to spend a lot of time adding as much color and texture as possible so that when I start layering, I don't feel pressure to pick the perfect embellishments. It all just comes together because my background is eye-catching no matter what I put on top. Or at least I hope it is.

I used grunge paste and a stencil in the background before adding, PA Infusions, PA Fresco Finish Paints and sprays.

PA Fresco Finish Paints were used to color the images that I chose to work with.

Scraps of ripped fabric,an old tea bag, book paper and fiber add texture. I literally used the scraps on my table.

Stamps are my favorite embellishments to use on my layouts. Not only can you customize them to your project but they are an embellishment that keeps on giving. I love that you only have to buy them once. I encourage you to reach for those stamps instead of your store bought embellishments. Get out your scraps, discarded layouts, stamps and and start creating.

I hope you are inspired to create a journal layout featuring only stamps as your embellishments.
