"Alice of Hearts" - Art Journal Page for Smeared and Smudged Kickstart Your Art!

Howzit Everyone!
Today was a busy a day!  To start we had our first Smeared Ink Design Team Blog Hop, click on the pic of my creation below to go see it and take the hop ;0)


 Today is also Day 1 of KICKSTART YOUR ART with the Smeared and Smudged Art Journal Every Day DT! What better way to experiment with new techniques and ideas than creating your very own ART JOURNAL for 2014!

Monday's challenge is

 "Alice of Hearts" - Art Journal Page

 The challenge inspired me to create this digital art journal page with an Alice in Wonderland playing card theme.  The primary colours Red, Yellow and Blue definitely got me in the mood to make a Pop Art piece.  But it's supposed to be an art journal page right so of course I will be printing it out and making my own Journal to write in.  I left the images white and lightened the background so that there's still plenty of place to jot down my thoughts.

Smeared Ink images used:
Girl #4 from the Hidden digi set
Heart - Heart Wings discontinued digi set now only available in the Smeared Ink Rubber Club!
Drips - partial from the digi set Fallen
Background - "Checkered" digi paper from the Zombie Killa 12 x 12 paper pack

If you'd like to join the fun then here's the deets on how you can kickstart your art.

The Smeared and Smudged Art Journal Every Day DT are so excited to be hosting our very first week-long journal challenge extravaganza! Each morning, for seven days, we will post a journal prompt or technique for challenge participants. The participants will have until midnight to post their journal page for that day's challenge. The daily winner will be announced the next morning along with the new journal challenge. Daily prizes will vary from gift certificates to coupons to free digis.

The fun thing about it is, at the end of the seven days we will be drawing for a grand prize! In order to qualify, participants must have posted entries in all seven journal challenges.
We look forward to this week long fun fest, and we hope you can play along!!!
