I’ve been MIA for about a week. Did you miss me? I sure have missed craft time. My time away just could not be helped. Last week I received a surprising call that my dad was having emergency surgery. He went to the hospital for a small outpatient procedure and was instead admitted to undergo a double by-pass. This was not something that any of us were prepared for, but according to the cardiologist it was urgent and could not wait. After several days of recovery in the hospital, dad is now home. Now begins the long process of rehabilitation. In light of the events that have occurred over the past few months, I am finding that family is so very precious to me. It is so important to me to spend quality time with family. With all of that in mind, I created this art journal page.
Grab a few of these supplies and let’s dive into the process video!
List of Supplies:
Before the video, I thought I would share a few detailed images of the completed art journal page.
Tip: Use a makeup sponge to blend and move gelatos around on a gessoed surface.
