Hi friends and welcome back to Art Journal With Me, a series where I share an art journal or travelers notebook layout each Wednesday. Today I am working in my handmade notebook and will create an affirmation page with Maggie Holmes Marigold. If you’d like to see more pages like this, check out the link here: Art Journal With Me. If you’d like to learn more about how to incorporate your creativity into your healing practice, check out our workshop Light The Path!
When I opened my notebook today to create, I had this lovely background of all the colors, red and yellow and pink, blue and green. I really could go any direction. So I grabbed my butterfly punches and punched shapes from the Marigold 6×8 patterned paper pad, and that was my jumping off point.
I also built my title using a combination of the Love stamp and the Hello sticker to say Hello Love. Additional stickers incorporate additional affirmations for the reader. and then the space is created for more embellishments around my title. The punched butterflies make beautiful cascades across both sides of the page. The layers create such gorgeous texture and movement, and the colors are a wonderful repeat from the background. I also filled in with more stickers, both colorful and black and white. Notice the tiny flower stickers I put on some of the butterfly wings? So sweet! I also stamped a few of the tiny leaves onto the background, for a bit more layering and that always-necessary touch of black.
The soft colors of this layout make it so pretty. Are you creating today? I hope this page inspires you to make something pretty that affirms you. Thank you so much for following along today, see you again soon!
