Over at Inspiration Journal the monthly challenge is Celebrate. I created this art journal spread for the challenge and to document the moments worth celebrating in my week.

I started out with some Neocolor II Crayons and water layering on more color as needed. I then used a few stencils, some white gesso, and some Distress Paint to add more interest to the background. I choose my colors based on the S.W.A.T. Spring Color Challenge. Love these colors!

I then added some Pan Pastels to brighten up a few areas. I is hard to see in the photo, but it adds a glow to the pages.

Next I added in some doodling using some Copic markers and Sakura pens. I also went around the page with a blue Gelato to draw your eye inward. The divider lines are some feathers I received in the mail.

I then added in my pictures and journaling.

Lastly I added in the words Celebrate everyday, more pictures, and a flower I inked with Distress Ink.

And there you have it - my moments worth celebrating. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have many worth celebrating this week.
