Art Journaling with Dina Wakley Week 4

This blog post is about the Index Card A Day creative challenge.

This year I am using the challenge to work through two Art Journal books by Dina Wakley.

I am using what supplies I already have to hand,

adapting the techniques when necessary.

I am starting with Art Journal Freedom.

Colour Schemes

Card 16 - Just being me

This card uses an analogous colour scheme.

I found the words on the floor the morning I made this index card,
which I think are cut from a BGU graphics sheet.

Index Card 16
I used the following materials:-

Acrylic Paint (Light Green/Lemon Yellow/Cobalt Blue)
Distress Ink (peeled paint)
Distress Ink (broken china)
Distress Ink (mustard seed)
Distress Marker (black soot)
Crafty Individuals Stamp (heart)
Archival Ink (Jet Black)
Silhouette (own)
Wording from BGU

Card 17 - Still becoming

This uses the same paints as the previous card,
but this time I was trying to create a different feeling
by adding a contrast colour.
