Happy new year! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and that you will all enjoy a healthy, successful and creative 2019!
This is the first blog post of the year and I am starting a new feature, called “a year in flowers”. It’s a yearly art journal project where I will be sharing pages using flowers as the focal point. And I start with the gorgeous hyacinth!

I am working on my 6×6 disc bound journal. The page is heavy watercolor cardstock and I started by applying a couple of sprays on the background. I used Altenew metallic sprays in Soft Lilac and Oceans Waves. It’s the easiest way to create an interesting background and allow for many techniques later on. I also used the Elegant Swirls stencil to lift some of the ink for a ghost effect. To complete the background I used my other favorite techniques, which are splatters and stamping.
I like to add motivational quotes on my pages and I will be doing that on this flower art journal too. Plus I came up with the idea of sticking down the dictionary definition of the flowers I use on the page. This yearly project is going to be so much fun. I hope by the end of the year I will have at least one page for each letter of the alphabet!
