After finishing the latest Inspiration Deck, I decided to do a spread in my art journal using the same style and lyrics from one of my favorite songs.
I used almost the same process as I used for the deck, leaving out the gesso and gel medium. First I sponged down the star and spiral shapes with Golden Iridescent Pearl, and colored the edges of the pages in watercolor crayon.
Then I added blue watercolor, instead of acrylics... I tend to use watercolors for this journal more often than not.
After that I added my dots and stamped stars...
And then my washi tape and lyrics. The song is "Bella Donna" by Stevie Nicks, and the line I used from it was "Don't you know that the stars are a part of us?"
Lastly, I put my date stamp on the left edge and wrote out the date with zodiac signs of the Sun & Moon for the right edge. I'm pleased that I finally managed to get the date stamp to apply fully and without smearing!
Here's the final spread...
More to come soon!
