I have signed up for Nathalie Kalbach's Summit 2012 Creative Jumpstart. I am loving all the new inspiration I am getting from some AMAZING artists. The video that has inspired me the most was the first one by Dina Wakley - her art journal pages are awesome. I don't consider myself to be all that 'arty' but, after seeing Dina's warm ups, I was inspired to get messy with paints, mists and stamps. And while art journals aren't really my thing, I decided to incorporate the techniques on my scrapbook pages. I had a piece of cardstock on my desk that I had sprayed with some mist for another project. I didn't like the way it looked so had started another. Once that layout was finished, I went back to the original piece of cardstock sitting on my desk, and started having a 'play'. And here is the finished product (with a little bit of Lou Nelson inspiration there as well).
I'm not sure that I am all that happy with it, but for a first attempt, I think it's ok. The colours don't really go all that well together. I don't have many supplies such as stamps, inks etc but I think I might need to change that! lol And here are some close ups:
