Keeping with the beach theme, I chose blue and green as my main color scheme and used pinks and browns as supporting colors.
I made a small booklet as an embellishment, using a bag from a gift shop souvenir.
When it came to the actual journaling part, I decided to challenge myself and try something different. When browsing online for inspiration, I was inspired by journals that were clean, organized and flat, without a lot of layering. This is very different from my usual style as I love tons of paint, texture and layers. Since the background was all white, I had to strategically place my journaling and stamps so that there were not a lot of white gaps.
I repurposed PaperArtsy tissue paper as an embellishment at the bottom of the page. At the top, the hand lettered title was painted with Fresco paints. With a ruler, I drew lines to section off areas and then I found stamps I liked that fit in the area, almost like a puzzle. The small amount of collage that I did do, was scaled back to only a few items.
