Welcome to my blog!
Today I have a new art journal page to share with you, and it is about my summer vacation in...Naxos! Naxos is a gorgeous Greek island in the Aegean Sea and it belongs in the island group of Cyclades. The island has great history and amazing nature scenery, with long beaches of golden sand and blue calm waters and many beautiful places to see! It also has absolutely delicious food!
I had a really great time in Naxos this summer and I thought I could keep some of my memories in my art journal book, so...here they are!
First, I made the background of the page using a map of the citi of Naxos and a soft layer of gesso over it. Then, I made a collage using our ship tickets, photos from our favorite beach and some photos of our favorite places and foods!
After that I used some stencils and stamps on the page, I glued and painted some wooden stars all over and I have written the quote of the page, using indian ink markers and a stencil with colored modelling paste for the name of the island! I also made a border of the page using distress stain.
Here are some closer photos:
My most favorite time of the vacations is when I'm relaxing on the beach just by staring the sea or reading a book! I wish I could do this more often....!
And my favorite beach...and food and drink! This summer I totally left my heart in Naxos!
Thank you for visiting my blog!
