Art Journal | Friends

It’s been so long since I shared one of my art journals so today I have a colorful one for you!

Aren’t these guys so much fun?! They come from a stamp set by Carabelle and the minute I saw them I knew I had to make an art journal about friendship.

In terms of techniques used, it was back to my favorite go-to techniques. They never get old and they help me achieve the style that I love. For my background I used a favorite technique, sticking down tissue paper with text.

For coloring I used my all time favorites distress paints and I just had to make a black and white border!

This page is using all my got-to techniques such as paper piecing and of course shading with my big brush markers.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

Supplies:

Carabelle is a French company and they are available in Europe as well as in the USA.

So here are the Carabelle products that I used in their online shop in France, for my European viewers.

And here are all the products available in the USA

    Those little guys are so cute! I love the color combination too. I’m going to try the border out on my next project – would be cute to make it red/white on a holiday layout! or perhaps blue and white for nautical. ideas, ideas, ideas. Thank you!
