Hope your week is going well. Today I am sharing a double page spread based on today’s daily prompt.
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is a page using my Day 20 prompt: Enchantment
I started off this page by covering the whole thing with a piece of scrapbook paper that was covered in a dense, dark floral pattern and was leftover from something else.
After that, I found yet another image from this same magazine I discovered in a pile of old mags. I loved how the woman was reclining on this green chaise, so I fussy cut around it and glued it on top of the scrapbook paper.
When all that was dry, I doodled all over the page with a swirly vine pattern which I thought fit in with the background paper, like maybe the enchantment is causing it to spread over the page and the woman on the sofa. Then I wrote the quote on with a white pen.
Maybe she has been sleeping here for 100 years like sleeping beauty and just woke up, or maybe her enchanted sleep is just about to start.
Hope you feel inspired to join in the challenge this month and have fun with it!
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!

Art Journal Journey – Fairytales, Folklore & Fables
Here are the prompts I will be using and you can probably tell that a lot of them are related to fairytales, but you don’t have to use them that way or you don’t have to use them at all. I will be attempting all 31 days but I may not make it and that’s OK too. The prompts are there if you feel stuck or in need of extra inspiration. I just respond well to a daily prompt and I will also be sharing my pages on Instagram. If you share your work on Instagram there is a hashtag. Please note, that to enter the Art Journal Journey challenge using the Mr Linky tool, you will have to link from a blog since it is a blog challenge.
Or you can ignore the daily prompts completely and focus on the overarching theme for the month. The daily prompts are there if you want to make more pages but need some extra prompting.
