StencilGirl & Inspiration Deck Blog Hop

Good Morning Friends today I have a quick tutorial for you on how I used the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck created by Kiala Givehand as a prompt to get me started in my art journal.

Starting out with just shuffling my cards and then I selected one at random

I decided to start out with 2 pages in my art journal that I really didn’t like it had kinda just been for doodling and so I never did anything with the pages. And these are the paints I used for this art journal spread

love the way it looks over the text papers!!

I needed to come up with a quote for my page.  When I created my girl I was thinking of how I can empower myself this year, thinking of how I want to be emulating that in my art.  So I came up with this quote that I thought fit perfect and I typed it & printed it out then cut it out and glued it to my page.  Added some watercolor drips under it to tie it into my page.

Thank you Kiala for allowing us to have so much fun with your Empowerment Deck!!  Now on to some giveaway fun!

    Re workshop; I told Tiare, I’m gutted I can’t do the Badass course. I think it would boost my personal growth in many areas. But it’s obviously not the right time.
    I didn’t know about the blog hop, shall definitely try to follow along. Having just used a Stencilgirlproducts stencil, I’d really like some more! But I visited here to catch up with you! Thank you for ALL you do!! Caroline 😀

  4. I really like the soft colors of this spread. You’re woman looks great- the Native American look has always appealed to me. I love layers and texture and this spread is full of both.

    1. Hi Annette thank you so very much! I too love the Native American style depicted in art. I feel there is a fierceness to them and I have a friend from collage who is Native American and she is a reminder to me how spirited, kind and fierce they and their heritage is !! xxoo

  5. I love the way you have been able to save a page you didn’t like very much by starting with the idea card. Very inspiring.
