Secret Swappers Art Journal cj
I'm taking part in my first ever proper art journal cj with the Secret Swappers group on UK Scrappers. my theme is that there is an envelope of prompts for you to choose from to base your entry on. I chose the prompt to describe yourself in three words which was harder than i first thought. I eventually plumped for loyal, chatty and creative. I built up my background with layers of acrylic paint, stencilling and stamping. I coloured in the Stampotique minky girl figure and stood her on a collaged trip of patterned paper and washi tape. I cut round a photo of myself and collaged it on to the heart and finished with some marks from the edge of a credit card and bottle top on paint and some oil pastels. I stamped the sentiment on white tissue paper, tore round the edges and adhered to the page with gel matte medium. I was pleased with the way it turned out and can't wait to see how the girls interpret the rest of the prompts.
