Hello art friends & Happy New Year!
I took a 2 month break and it's so good to be back sharing my art again. You can check out the video step by step tutorial at the bottom of the post.
I wanted the theme for this art journal layout to be in line with the New Year.
So as I created it I thought about what I wanted to leave behind and not take with me into 2021. I also thought about things I want to accomplish this year. I look forward to growing as an artist and YouTuber. Change is hard but without change and being open to new possibilities we can't grow. So with that in mind, butterflies were perfect for this theme. But I think butterflies are perfect on every layout!
I created this layout in my 8x8 Arteza journal. It has lots of layers beginning with book paper, paint, stencil design, and the final layer was some of Shawn Petite's wonderful digital collage pak elements. Shawn makes it so easy to create art with all the different Collage Paks and Stencils she offers. I hope you enjoy the video!
