Adventures in Art Journaling - Part Four

Hello Friends,

Well, my new art journal is quickly filling up. I've missed a few days, but I've been at it pretty regularly. The page I'll share with you today boasts the actual library pocket that came with the original book.

I used Leaf Green Acrylic paint, texture paste and sponged a little SU Cherry Cobbler ink for my background.

Isn't she lovely? She was a photo in the original book. I sponged a little SU Cherry Cobbler on her lips, cheeks and collar. Then I added some feathers and seed beads to her hair.

There is the actual library pocket that came with the book. No, I did not steal the book. I bought it at a library book sale. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The tag I made for the library pocket. The printable is vintage and from Little Birdie Blessings blog.

I didn't know why this picture struck me when I kept it out of the original book. Often I will clip words or pictures if they grab my attention and then it makes sense to me later on. That is what happened here. The little girl represents how I worry sometimes, but the thought of my Heavenly Father being anxious about my future is ridiculous. If he is not worried than neither should I be.

I clipped this picture from the original book too. The gold is an actual chunk of gold that my brother brought back from a trip to the Bad Lands in South Dakota, USA. This reminds that God has promised to take care of all my needs.

I love this sentiment by Lilac & Lavender. It reminds me that I can still do the things I have dreamed of doing.

I created this tag with texture paste, a stencil, bronze embossing powder and various inks.

A close-up of this lovely lady. Doesn't she look like she is lost in a beautiful daydream?
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my art journal journey. If you have posts or tutorials of your art journal pages I would love to see them. Just leave a link to your blog post in the comments and I will pop over for a visit.
