Creative Mess – Travelers Notebook Spread

February 17, 2020

Happy Birthday to me!! Yes today is my birthday (but that project is coming next week). Today I’m excited to share with you a layout using the Art Supplies Background stamp set! Have you ever started a project and had one idea, but then it morphed into another? Well, this was that kind of project.

For this project I created a traveler’s notebook spread.

  • I started by adding a thin layer of clear gesso to white card stock.
  • After this was dry, I stamped the Art Supplies Background stamp onto one of the pieces of paper. This was a little difficult and the bottom portion is “blurry”, however I tried to cover it up. 
  • Next, I decided I would add splatters vs coloring the background. I grabbed my markers, scribbled them on an acrylic block and with a paint brush I flicked the color on the background… I was NOT happy with this result. It wasn’t very bright and at this point I’m thinking of starting over…but I keep pushing forward.
  • I grab a few acrylic paints and repeat the flicking process. Now we are talking! This began looking like my sponge painted walls I had in middle school…well the colors any way (yes, I made my mom sponge paint my room in teal, pink, yellow, orange and purple. She’s amazing.)
  • Now, I felt it needed a little more POP! I added two black strips of black card stock to the inner edge of each page. It felt more grounded with this added.
  • To complete the layout, I stamped a few of the phrases from #Beautiful Mess, layered pattern paper behind my photo and added journaling.

So in the end, I’m happy with how it turned out. Just like my creative studio, this layout has a little chaos (or a lot).  I encourage you to document your space. How has it evolved over the years? I started with a plastic rolling drawer unit (which I still have) and now I have a room!

You really make it seem really easy with your
presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually something that I think I
might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very large for me.
I am taking a look forward on your subsequent publish, I will try to get
the cling of it! 0mniartist asmr

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not
sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
With thanks 0mniartist asmr
