For week 45 at Journal 52, Chelle asked us to think of someone special, even if it was ourselves. Since this is AEDM or Art Every Day Month, I thought of all the wonderful friends I had either met or reconnected with. They, along with my loyal readers and followers are who I made this journal page for.
And I meant every word, too.
Chelle used her own handmade mists from dye. I used a different formula. You can always find it on my Tutorials page if you forget how I made these shimmering mists. From the looks of things, I'll be making more soon.
I thought I needed more than one color for the background, so went with a purchased mist to supplement mine. However, this mist isn't shimmery like mine is. But that only matters if you are looking at this spread in person, because mica doesn't photograph or scan well.
My stencil didn't work well, and was even more problematic when I brushed my long sleeve over the wet mist. Not to worry. This isn't fine art, instead it's made with love. I took this photo so you could see I used a pop dot to raise the heart, which won't show when I scan the spread.
I worried the red heart was too "in your face" red up against my pink mists. But I had already doodled on the heart, something I don't really do well, so I decided the colors would have to do.
The 45 written in the two pink hearts signified the week number. This number is nearly as chilling as the countdown to Christmas! Only seven more weeks until this project is complete.
But for now, please just tell someone how special they are to you, because you know how special you are to me.
For Day 8 of AEDM,
Baby, The Rain Must Fall
