Grow Art Journal

Grow Art Journal

This is my Garden Journal that I keep all my info about my crazy gardens. I am the keeper of the lists. I have lists, maps, journals, spreadsheets, you name it, I have it written down somewhere.

I actually have a few of these journals and just love them. Sturdy and durable.

So here is my creative process:



garden book 7

Pre-anything, covered the window with some thick cardstock, and adhered the relic on.

garden book 5

I always have to lay everything out to get a good visual. Not one of those gals that can just throw things together.

garden book 4

The mess trying to find the right pieces.

garden book 2

Gesso’d and stenciled. Ready for some spray.

Spray is on, now to cautiously gesso and paint the adornments without ruining the background.

This is were I painted it.

This is were I painted it this spring.

Now for the pretty close-ups.

I added some more dimension to the bee with some flat backed beads and some cyrstals for the eyes.
