Different is Beautiful

by admin

Hey y’all! Scarlett here today with an art journal page. The new Teen Advice transparency has a terrific array of verses, got my gears turning!

‘What Make You Different Makes You Beautiful’

Say that to yourself, enurmerous times a day; see it in yourself; say it to others; see it in others. Yes and Amen!!

I saw this statement and the page appeared in my head, though at the time I wasn’t quite sure how I’d get there. Let’s take a peek in to my process:


I started off by dabbing various paint colors through the Ice Shards Stencil. My initial thought was to have some type of rainbow effect background, however, it wasn’t going as I hoped and I added some gray to mute the color pop down and bring some more neutral back in.

Next I added some layers of stamping using the Geometric Shapes B stamp set and the Heart Set Stamp with Archival Inks. Metallic paint and the outline of figures to come were also added.


I continued to increase the layers on the background by outlining/highlighting some stamped shapes with paint markers and adding some glitter glue. The figure images were also created using paint and NeoColors.

Probably the only shot of the page needed huh? The combination of paint and Neocolors over the textures of the background is a delight to my eyes, the sentiment to my heart!

To finish off the top of the page additional markings were made with paint pens and some splatters of ink added.

Here is a look at the final page one more time:
