Paper Craftin with Erica

Art Journal – Lesson 2

The Lesson 2 theme of my Art Journaling class by Marit is Silhouettes.  I kinda like it, kinda don't.  Every time I look at it, the only word that comes to mind is "childish."  It seems too kid-like, but I guess it's not necessarily bad.  This is definately out of my comfort zone, but I'm managing.


I sprayed the background with a light purple Glimmermist.  I put down chipboard hearts, a swirlie and an AND sign… and then sprayed over with a darker purple Glimmermist.  I traced the edges of the silhouettes for added depth.  Then I added embellishments and a journaling spot.  I added chipboard and glitter chipboard embellishments for a 3-D effect.  Enjoy!

    Stepping out of your comfort zone isn’t that bad after all… I love your “childisch” layout! Really! Have a nice weekend Erica!

    This is awesome Erica!! You know it is, and just like me, working outside our comfort zone makes us feel like we did it wrong. But, I’m telling you, you did great!!
