Art Journaling with Limited Supplies: another Sticky Journal post


When we went to Michigan last week, I brought a small kit of art supplies.  In the kit was a medium size plastic envelope with a handful of painted papers, collage elements, stickers and tape.

I also brought a small box with glue, scissors, and a few pens and markers.  I tried to keep the art supplies to a minimum and really force myself to create something from just the small selection of materials I brought.  We used up almost all of the paper and collage elements I brought!

My mom surprised the kids with more stickers, stampers and a packet of markers, so we had a variety of materials to work with.

Some of the pages in my art journal were pre-prepped with spray inks and a little bit of paint.

Sticky elements used in this collage:
  • homemade sticker with quote
  • pink polka dot tape
  • giraffe sticker

 

Here is another page I made:


And here are a few pics from our vacation!

The rides were fast!

We roasted Smores, but Daria just wanted to eat plain marshmallows
I hope you enjoyed my post reliving my vacation trip!
