I'm am so excited today is the day of our ART JOURNAL BLOG HOP! About a month ago I put out there the idea of doing this hop. I've been so into art journaling lately and thought it would be alot of fun! I got a great response and today I'm hopping with some great chix's! One is the wonderful Lisa Hetrick who is the creator of our fabulous logo for the hop, thanks Lisa!!
I'm also linking up to Unity's FWF, of course :-) And speaking of Unity I wanted to shout out and wish UNITY STAMP CO a Happy 5th Birthday!!
This is your first stop on this Art Journal Blog Hop! I hope you will take the time to go through the hop. There are prizes offered along the way, so be sure to leave comments!
Here is the journal spread I came up with:
I was in a bit of a springtime mood. At first I was going to go with something summery and this is happened. These birds are based on birds I learned to make while taking Melody Ross's Wings class. Basically I cut the body shape and wing for the bird out of paper and glued it in the book. Then I painted them and added stamps for texture. Their beaks are glittery with orange stickles. I used lots of Crafters Workshop stencils and Unity Stamps! For the bricks I used a heavier body orange paint with the brick stencil from the Crafters workshop.
Once again I took pictures along the way and put them together in a quick slideshow to share with you! Please take a minute to check it out where I share pictures of supplies and close ups! And of course if you have any questions let me know.
For hopping along I'm offering a prize to one lucky winner!! The hop will stay going until Monday at midnight EST. I will pick my winner on Tuesday and post it here!
Here is the prize pack I am offering:
There are going to be more than this great prize pack, other girls are offering prizes on their blogs as well all you have to do is hop along and comment! I will pick a winner Monday so swing on back then!
