Affirmations Page - Art Journal Backgrounds
Hello there! Long time, no Art!! I have been away for a bit, but I am back now and ready for some more fun with my art journal.
Here is a page I just finished, where I did the grid design in watercolor pencils and crayons, and the writing with a black Sharpie pen. I love Sharpies, because you can get both fine and ultra-fine tipped pens, and they will write on anything! You can make your background and use it for all kinds of things other than an affirmation page...It could be a page for listing chores for the children, or hubby, or it could be for weekly menus, shopping lists, guest lists for a party, all kinds of things that could be listed on here. I like the way the grid pattern looks. Just draw your grid, scribble on the inside of each square in the colors you like, and use a wet brush inside of each square to blend. Then dry and use your pen to write your wording on the inside! See! Easy as pie...(except pie isn't very easy to make, especially the crust if you make home-made and don't use store bought...) Enjoy!
