Mixed Media Art Journals Created for a New Art Customer!
This past week I completed a project for a customer who requested two different sized mixed media journals with unique covers. She was wonderful to work with and knew exactly what she wanted on each. Being inspired by some of my past works, I decided to create the smaller mixed media journal in a butterfly theme and the larger with a floral/garden theme. The customer asked that I include dragonflies as well, so there are a few of those floating around on the garden cover journal!
Using various decorative papers from my stash, I began by cutting out different shape petals for each bloom. I wanted the cover to be bright and cheery, so I used all sorts of various hand painted papers as well as some scrapbook and wrapping papers. This journal measures 9" x 12"
This 8.5" x 5.5" journal is a bit smaller but still full of all sorts of mixed media goodness! Colorful and whimsical butterflies adorn the front and back covers against a background filled with bits and bobs of all sorts.
Now these journals are making their way to their new home and I am looking forward to hearing from my new customer when they arrive!
If you're looking for a unique, hand decorated mixed media journal, give me a shout. I'd love to create something special just for you!
