Inspire. Create. Art. - Art Journal Page ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

I was fortunate enough this month to take several classes with Ania Dąbrowska (aka Finnabair) and one of the classes resulted in my first foray into Art Journalling - and now I might be hooked! So I thought it would be fun to create an Art Journal page to celebrate my experience learning from Ania! This page is inspired by Finnabair's page called Tangled and uses her gorgeous Prima Sunrise Sunset papers, stamps and Vintage Trinkets, as well as some "found objects" (aka I raided the husband's toolbox) and thread. The picture of Ania and me was taken following the first class (please forgive that I look like a grinning idiot - I was so thrilled with learning from Ania!).
Here are some close-ups of the left and right pages.
I used the new Imaginarium Designs Loolabelle's Nested Arrows and Loolabelle's Chevrons 2 chipboard shapes. I left the shapes plain when I attached them to the journal page so that they could absorb the misted colours of the page. I also sprinkled some pigment powder directly onto them in places and misted it with water to get the really cool gold metallic effects. Here are some close-ups of the chipboard!
