Mixed media art journal spread : Let the Earth breathe

These past days we have seen a lot of unexpected decisions, and one if not all inspired me for art journal pages. Denying the global will not make it disappear. We are all responsible for polluting the Earth and should all take actions to reduce green house gases emissions (beside a lot of other actions like reduce plastic use, research for green energy vehicles, eliminate harmful fertilizers...the list is long).

Let Mother Earth breathe was my inspiration :

You can recognize the Free Spirit stamp (Prima Marketing) as Gaia aka Mother Earth, stamped with Walnut stain distress ink (Ranger).
Background was built with heavy white gesso (Prima Marketing), and Art Anthology paints in different shades of green : Avocado Colorations spray, Shamrock Velvet dimensional paint, Parakeet Sorbet dimensional paint, Granny Smith colorations spray. I also used distress inks in Mowed Lawn and also Walnut stain (Ranger) for the edges. I used Mini herbarium stencil by TCW and few stamps for the leaves.

Wanna be a responsible crafter ? Here is a simple thing to do : have two trash can in your craft room, one for recycling (or more depending on how your recycling program works) for leftovers, paper wrapping, metal, fibers... and one for the rest. and if not done already, extend it to the whole house...

Thanks you for reading this post today. due to the number of decisions taken these days, you might see other inspired art journal pages soon.

Have a great day !
