Serenity 43

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 20, 2013 @ 9:01 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you had an amazing weekend! It's Monday so that means it's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is "Spooky Season". I opted to make a page in my art journal exploring the dark side of grey and black.

The beautiful scene in the Serenity stamp set was calling to me to create a page in my art journal.
To create the page, I combined a variety of mediums such as jet black ink, Black Velvet Color Shine, Tinsel Color Shine and Grunge Paste as well as lots of layers made using Tissue Tape and patterned paper.

I had a fabulous weekend ... met a blog friend from your neck of the woods!
I love your page ... so serene indeed ... A question ... is an art journal a special book ... I mean do the pages have to be watercolour paper or anything ... I'd love to do one and I'm not sure if I can just use any book

Lynette said...

Your page is SO very beautiful. I have prepared a altered book for art journalling...but I am still to build up the courage to take the plunge.
