Hello! Vicki recently shared a page of prompts in her Mixed Media Community on Facebook, to jumpstart creativity! I chose prompt 22 – Black, White and …. I picked bees (yellow)! I decided to make a spread in my traveller’s notebook, a bit of a planner/art journal/diary type page that I will fill in with quotes and journaling!
I started with a white background and used the Wildflower & Honey honeycomb stencil with the Vicki Boutin brush and a yellow Art Crayon from the Warm Set in 3 different spots.
Next up, I added paint puddles with some packaging and a golden Art Crayon from the Neutrals set in the same three spots.
For some contrast, I used the honeycomb stamp from the Wildflower & Honey stamp set. I love that the pattern is similar to the stencil but a smaller scale.
Once my background was all dry, I had fun decorating the page! I drew myself seven blocks for journaling or adding quotes and focused my embellishments on the same three areas I added the mixed media.
Love the bees!
I will probably end up using the left side of the spread for some longer journaling. It will be fun to wrap it around the large die cuts!
You could easily adapt this page design to a scrapbook layout. Be sure to check out the prompts and join Vicki’s group!
