Create the world you want to see... 38

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, June 21, 2012 @ 10:37 PM | , , , , ,

Hello! Still on vacation having lots of fun with my family here in San Diego. I'll be sure to share some photos soon :) I packed a few supplies that I brought along so I could play in my Art Journal while on this trip. Here's a page that I came up with:
To create this page in my art journal, I referred to a tutorial shown on the Balzer Designs blog ~ click HERE. My page turned out NOTHING like I had in mind or like the sample shown but I still had fun playing with all the sprays and mists :)
 Although you can't really see the dimension in the photos, I used a fair amount of molding paste to add texture. Maybe on the next page it will show better!
 Thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)
