Capture The Moment

Keeping an art journal is like having a very special diary in which you can express yourself with not just words but also images, paints, colors and many more...
It's also a perfect way to collect all the special moments we would like to remeber forever...

Hello dear mixed-media experimenters!

I'm sure you won't be surprised if I tell you that I want to share with you my next art journal page. I just couldn't resist, I really love art journals...
And this page is super special to me because I made it in great company with somebody who has changed my life.
And that is what's so amazing about art journals. With colors and textures you can capture a moment in time that you might forget one day. It's like diary but better of course.

I prepared a very simple background with few pieces of papers and White Gesso.
Then, I played a little bit with one of my favorite Finnabair's stencils using Modeling Paste. After a few moments I added some embellishments, the picture, doodling and watercolor paints. 
I glued all the heavy elements  using 3D Gloss Gel which is the best glue for that kind of things. But to add a little bit of sparkle with Copper Glass Glitter, I used Soft Matte Gel.

As you can see, it's very simple and based on layering (paints, embellishments and colors).
But I think it doesn't have to be very fancy to be interesting and to help you remember some special feeling, or a moment or even one word that somebody said.
