Gorjuss 'Mini' Art Journal 2018 ~ June ~ A friend is the nicest thing

Hi Everyone,

I am back with the June layout for my 'Mini' Art Journal 2018.

I will be working in my DIY watercolor art journal.

I have a tutorial for you if you want to make one yourself.
Check it out HERE 

For this layout I went with Stamp No.39 'The Lost Heart' Gorjuss Mini stamp by Santoro. 

I was inspired by her teddy bear!
Also, the fact that she was all sad and dark made me think that she needed a burst of sunshine in her life so I reached for this Geo Quarters sunburst stencil by Kaisercraft.

I also reached for the yellow from my Distress Crayons and some Americana Acrylic Paint in the color dolphin (aka grey).

After the background was finished, I used my Stampaholic to stamp out the Gorjuss girl and a whole stack of teddy bears from Kaisercraft's 'Teddy Bear Picnic' stamp set.

I used my Koi Sakura water color palette to do some relaxing colouring.

I gave her a red over-coat so that she stands out against the background. 

And I coloured in 8 teddy bears!!

For the sentiment, I chose the one from the stamp set.

And here is my art journal layout!

You will notice that the grey looks really dark here compared to the original background.
After I was finished, I felt the grey needed to be darker to provide a better contrast. 

I like how it turned out.

You can watch the whole process on my YT HERE

Wishing you Care Bear sunshine (sorry I just had to!).
