Art Journal Page: Smiling Face

I have a confession; For those that know me, I'm a die-hard dork and I love me some good sci-fi/paranormal  shows.  A trekkie, I am not, but anything else from Stargate to Warehouse 13 makes Sara a happy girl.  Last month I dived down the rabbit hole and started watching, "The Vampire Diaries."  It's like, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but with more teenage angsty stuff, if that's possible.  I can't tear myself away from it.  Who will Elena choose this week?  Stephen or Damon???  Must. Watch. More. Episodes. 

But I will say I've been busy in my Dylusions Art Journal while I've been watching episodes!  I LOVE this journal!  I did a video of it over at Craft Test Dummies YouTube Channel you can check it out!  Today I'm just going to share a fun page I completed.  I am trying to take Dyan's approach to journaling and not feel obligated to go in order. 


This page has a lot on it.  I started with a mixed distress paint background, added some distress ink, dylusions sprays & masks and stamps.  I cut the girls face out of a  magazine and unfortunately glued it in poorly.  She got super wrinkled but she was also super stuck down.  I decided to just go with it and let her wrinkly self be.  I kept adding more and more layers and doodles until it was ready for the quote.  I think I've decided this art journal will be dedicated to some of my favorite quotes I've been collecting over the years in another journal I've had since high school. 

Well that's it for today, crafters!  Stay tuned to some more fun projects and art journal pages!
