Hello you precious, pretty people.
The FOCUS of today's video tutorial for an art journal spread is that there are creative ways to fix what you might consider... well... ugly. It is mostly about a THOUGHT PROCESS - not as much as a "how to".
After I added a peach color to my background, I actually showed my mom how bad it looked. She told me the colors reminded her of some art deco colors from a house remodeling show. Then she suggested adding a vintage picture of Loretta Young that my grandfather received while serving in the war along with an "art deco" pattern somewhere...
So a shout-out to mom! I was able to transform my "ugly" idea into something beautiful! The journal spread might have been easier to complete on a canvas board, but that's okay. It worked.
You can see the video tutorial and a complete list of products I used at the bottom of my blog entry.
