Day Dreamer.... art journal page with video tutorial

Hello everyone,

today I will share with you my new art journal tutorial in whimsical style.

Weeks ago I started with a new serie of this cute little art journal pages.

15 cm x 15 cm.

I used on the background an old technique, called Bokeh.

The name Bokeh comes from the photography (the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light)

Lots of tutorials about this technique can you find on YouTube.

TIP: It`s always fun to try new techniques, but once in a while go back to the

 beginning with a new perspective.

As a mixed media artist , I use a wide range of materials, which I have been

collected for a long time. Many mediums are still coming out of my painting period.

I chose a bright color scheme for my background which is for me a perfect combination to the

 black and white photo. My art journal pages are always embellished with little animals

(butterfly, birds, bunny, or, or, or...) I think that`s just too cute by the little children.
