My birthday is coming up in a few days so I’ve decided to celebrate with a new art journal page…
For you and me of course 🙂

Had no idea what to do when I started but things slowly seem to fall into place and I got in the groove…
I started by painting my background with acrylics then added some shine with pearlescent acrylic inks.
I stamped some gorgeous roses with a new stamp set I just purchased and proceeded to add some lovely colours to them.
Doodling with a white pen really brought them to life and I am so happy with my funky flowers, I think I’ll be re-using them!
A beautiful quote filled the main space without being overpowering…
And some birthday related stamped images (a bird, not really birthday but he fits right in anyway!), a delicious cupcake and a cheery banner added some fun finishes touches…

Happy birthday to me, and to you if applicable!
