Today is the day for the Spring coffee lovers bloghop, I know it is going to be as much fun as the others and filled with so many wonderful coffee projects.
The mixability challenge this week was to make a card or project with a decorative edge. When I decided to do my art journal, I knew that I was going to have to do a total of 4 pages I did a random wavy edge. I used blue, green and turquoise acrylic paint to tie all the pages together. What is hard to see is on the JOY page there is cheesecloth embedded into the paint. I used mod podge to add it to the background. I sprayed the pages with gold shimmer paint as well. My thinking behind this layout was Thinking about the little things that make me happy. Butterflies, music, cup of coffee, flowers, my favorite colors and reading. I punched a little heart out of the page with the decorative edge. I meant to leave a place on the left side so that both sides of the heart would tie together, but I kinda got carried away, so I had to add a punched out heart. I outlined it with a black marker to make it stand out. You can see a little music note peeking through the heart. I stamped a matching music note on the page so they would tie together. I used a gold marker to outline the wavy page to draw attention to its edges.
This is the second page with the decorative edge. I went with a music theme. I used the same paints to tie them together. You can see the little punched out heart showing through the heart window.
