Art Journal and new stamps

Hi There,

last days I had time to play in my art journal and I had so much fun. Because it was just for me.

I painted an owl with watercolors. In my mind the face of an owl has so much character and personality. Sometimes the impenetrable look intill a little fear but sometimes I find it cute and cuddly.

My sentiments are some phrases from a song text "I see you" (Leona Lewis).
"When my heart was never open
(And my spirit never free)
To the world that you have shown me
You teach me how to see all that's beautiful
My senses touch a world I never pictured"

I also had the pleasure to use the brand new "Feather" and "Leaves" stamps I designed for Whiff of Joy. I especially love to hold the sketches I made as stamps in my hand. I hope you will love them as I do.
These were my first attempts in my art journal.

You can buy these stamps collections from the 20th of January at the shop of Whiff of Joy. Later I will add these also to my Dawanda Shop.

And this Art Journal Page is made for the Art Journal Journey - January Challenge "Silence". I used some stamps from the new "Feather" stamp set, as you can see the two leaves and the little mosquito. For the background I used the Arabesque stencil from Nathalie Kalbach and Glimmer Mist. Then I sketched the tree with a black pen.

I share it with the fabulous Paint Party Friday and with you. Thanks for visiting today! I wish you all a wonderful Friday and a great Weekend!
