On a recent trip to my local scrapbooking store (Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA), I was delighted to find that they are recognizing the growing number of art "journalers," and are adding many products and elements just for us!! I was able to buy some of Christy Tomlinson's rub-ons which I added in the bottom right-hand corner:
I also used brown ink and a circle stamp by Ditto randomly around the page to add further texture (see full image above). Next came the journaling part of my art journal page. As part of the pad of paper, there came some text, but it was too large for me to use on my page. I chose to computer-generate the text for my page and printed the quote (author unknown) in brown ink on cream card stock. Then, I fussy cut around the letters to add a bit of interest:
For balance in my text, I simply divided the word "saying" and placed the text strips on either side of the lady's right hand. I love how it looks!
