Rainbow Unicorn Journal Page
I have a slight love affair with unicorns and it is not because of the current trend in the art world. A few years ago I ran across an amazing store called “The Flying Unicorn” with the most helpful big-hearted owner. I started to subscribe to her monthly boxes and a few years later traveled to the retreat that she hosted in Texas. I met the most amazing group of artists and we became friends. These ladies helped get me back into my hobby. Through them, I learned how to be comfortable with myself and the art that I liked to create. We called ourselves the “Uni-Sisters” and get together whenever we can. I made this journal in honor of our little group!
The Unicorn magic
The base is a beautiful turquoise watercolor from Plaid, I wanted it to resemble sky! I stamped Rita Barakat’s Unicorn Art Foamie stamp with paint. Wanting to really make my unicorn shine, I added some glitter paint to the mane, tail and the horn. A unicorn is a magical creature that has to sparkle right?
I thought I was just about done, but after I added my saying I realized I needed a rainbow. Clearly, ponies are stuck on the ground and unicorns are magical that can fly above the rainbows. Now the fun part – MORE GLITTER AND CHUNKY! This page really needed to sparkle and shine while showcasing that spunky positive attitude, so I finished it off with the amazing Glitteriffic Paint in two colors!
If you do not have an art journal I strongly recommend getting one. It is a great place to try out new techniques and products as well as freely expressing yourself.
I agree Betz! I love art journaling!
