Another week has passed and I am still sticking with art journalling regularly, even with being exhausted and sick with the flu. My first page this week is the finished up challenge page that I shared here last week. I have now added stamping in the form of heat embossing stars in silver and gold glitter and a quote with letter stickers. I was feeling a bit blah about this page last week, but now that it’s done, I actually LOVE the finished result! The embossing made all the difference for me and this is a technique I need to challenge myself to do more often!
My second page this week using a prompt about the most adventurous thing I’ve even done. My family would all say it’s jumping out of a plane since I’m scared of heights, but I found that abseiling 30 metres scared me a whole lot more. It was adventurous and challenging and I’m so proud that I did it! The journalling on this page is about facing my fears. For this page, I printed the full-page photo on textured cardstock, hand wrote my journalling, used a star brad at the top and some thickers that I have on hand. The journalling on this page is a little hard to read, but I still love how it turned out!
And because I love it so much, here is a more detailed shot of the first page to show the embossing a little better!
