Another day, another journal page!

I frequently break off from bigger projects in the evenings to work on journal pages.  It's my ultimate relaxing Craft and something that I can easily do in the living room by grabbing a new supplies and getting stuck in!

I used the following materials:

My current favourite starting point for art journal pages is Gelatos. I've been using them for a long while now and can see then continuing to be a firm favourite for years to come!!  I was able to match Promarker colours well to make the image from That Craft Place for perfectly!

Continuing to layer shapes and marks gives the page depth and the final addition of black and white to the page gives it the definition it needs.

So this is yet another art journal page about my love of art journaling!  I seem to have a recurring theme!
Thank you as always for popping by and keep an eye out soon for a GIVEAWAY on this blog and social media!
