September Art Journaling

I love having my craft supplies with me most of the time again. But during the summer, I didn't get that much chance to get them out. September was different :-)

I started playing with my stuff, inspired by what I learned about expressionism and driven by the need to express myself. And then I just couldn't stop! I think at some point during the month, I pretty much spent a whole day just crafting! It was just what I needed. I played with layers and paint and magazine clippings and colour mists and stamps and embossing powder... I mostly worked on A6-cards, but also used a few 12x12" pages.

I stamped the wings with green versafine ink, and then the balloon with versamark. When I added the blue embossing powder, it stuck to some of the green ink as well. It gave a nice effect. Yay for unintended things that work out cooler than the way you had imagined!

I read about oil pastels and realized I still had that big box my uncle and aunt gave me almost 20 years ago. I hadn't used them for a while and had fun experimenting. I have nothing to fixate them with though... I'm thinking maybe laminate them? Any advice?

I drew inspiration from what I had learned about expressionism, but mostly from a book on art collages I had picked up at the Boekenfestijn.

It was very inspirational to just go trough my stuff and rediscover what craft supplies I have!
