"Ready to Fly" - Art Journal Page by Mary

Welcome to the blog today! I have a page from my art journal page to share with you. My inspiration was lyrics from a song (Ready to Fly by FFH) and I knew which of Gypsy Soul's products I had wanted to use! I first used a light blue chalk to lay a sky base. To make the "clouds," I cut a piece of scrap paper into two different cloud shapes. I then used the template and a darker blue chalk.
The hot air balloons were covered with paper and distressed with ink while the baskets were heat embossed!
 The letters on the balloons are adhesive and the other words are rub-on letters.
 The three birds were all inked and then liquid embossed.

On the left is my first page and I didn't like it! That is the great thing about art journaling; you get a chance to play around with different techniques. I took the pieces off, rechalked the clouds and reattached the pieces. I so like the final page way better. It is less cluttered and I still feel the inspiration of the lyric.

Thank you for dropping by today!
