START Art Journal Page

Today I'm sharing my START Art Journal Page. We've just celebrated the Jewish New Year and according to tradition the circle has a special meaning on that day. A circle is a perfect shape much like the perfect year we all wish ourselves. That is also why circle foods like apples, pomegranate and a circle bread are apart of the holiday meal. This art journal page is all about starting a new perfect year!




START Art Journal Page

I started with cutting pattern paper scraps into circles and arranging them to see where each circle would go. Then I put them aside. I painted the entire page with a metallic gold acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I attached the circles.




Then I made a 3D frame to each circle with a Pearl Pen by Viva. This is a special pen that comes in different colors and you can draw 3D lines with it. Once it was dry I painted the frames with the same gold paint as the page.




Then I added different colors of Inka Gold paste to create an aged effect on the page.




I got so excited with adding the pastes that eventually I lost some of the patterns and colors of the pattern paper circles. So I added a white stencil pattern and some more papers to restore the color and vibrancy to the page. Finally I wrote the words start and begin and added the sentence: "Every journey starts with a small step so start walking and begin your journey".




I hope the START Art Journal Page inspired you to start your journey...
