Wanderlust 2017: MARCH

Here are the March pages in my "Wanderlust journal":

live Facebook adventure*

This month, there were some pages I liked very much. I'm also in love with the traveller's notebook format of my journal.

(*) The last page was done during the Facebook live event. I'm not a fan of random prompts in random order so I was very happy when one of the last prompts was "to cover the page with paint" and I could hide the sequence of prompts that didn't really work together.

Three months into the Wanderlust classes... and I'm still not sure whether I like them or not. I'm not happy about the format, teachers, classes, the overall pace... Not that it's bad or anything, but it's not just my thing, I suppose. I find it very hard to be inspired, so I'm just doing my page a week(end). I've established this weekly crafting "ritual" when I'm painting on Saturday afternoons/evenings and that works for me.

PaperArtsy 2017 Topic 3: Paint with Infusions

The newest PaperArtsy topic is Paint with Infusions. I'm so in love with the Infusions powders. I love their versatility and their vibrancy. I can't wait to get my hands on the new colours.

For this challenge, I made this journal page:

I used the Infusions to create a subtle background. Then I stamped some other elements to the background using Lin Brown's stamp sets (ELB29 and ELB30) and acrylic paints.

I cut the backgrounds a bit smaller than the size of the page to create a border.

Finally, I stamped the leaves (also from Lin Brown's ELB29) on grey cardstock  cut them out and glued them to the page.
