Be Still – Mixed Media Art Journal with Gelatos

by Brandy Burke

Today I’m working through some empty nest feelings with a little art journaling. This is definitely why I save my magazines because I can always find something useful in them either for a backdrop or the main focus.

This video goes to show you can literally just use whatever you have on hand in your art journal — but if you’re in a shopping mood, here are the supplies I used (and YES, the links below are affiliate links, which means if you click it and buy what I recommended I will get a tiny {think pennies) commission). I never recommend what I don’t use myself.

Mixed Media Book
Liqutex Gesso
Texture Paste
Mini Mister
Bo Bunny Glitter Paste in Licorice
Tim Holtz Stencil
Black Distress Ink
Blending Tool

That’s what we do this for, right? All these years of raising kids, teaching them everything we know, waiting up on them to come home, worrying and praying and praying some more – it’s all for this – so that they feel prepared to live in a big world on their own.

Don't leave, read these instead...
