Vera Bradley "Moon Blooms" Inspired Art Journal Layout!

It truly isn't a secret that I love 'all things' Vera Bradley. The amazing vibrant colors & way cool doodle patterns are super enticing.

Vera Bradley recently released their new 2014 Fall line. This "Moon Blooms' pattern struck my eye immediately. I love how the hot pink, baby pink, apple green, gray, and white doodled leaves & flowers just leap off the black backdrop.

I thought I would give this pattern a try in my art journal. Here is my process:

Used Golden High Flow Acrylic Paints
to create the background
Painted the flowers & leaves with
Golden & Americana Acrylic Paints
Outlined & doodled with a black Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen (small brush)
and Sakuru Gelli Pens

Added American Craft "Shoebox" Thickers for the Title

And, "VOILA!" 

Had a BLAST! Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day! :D
