Smilla in my heart

Art Journal spread:

Smilla love – on a page with a clear sense of autumn orange and autumn leaf inspiration. I used both pressed leaves collected on one of my walks, and half transparent stickers with leafs!

Store gift tag with the message that You look great!, a science book illustration and my newest addition to the deco tape collection bought at Syfestivalen (in one of the scrapbook booths). It has pink text and I love it!

Another detail; a pressed autumn leaf with a dark red center. The woman icon is actually a Swedish saint (Heliga Birgitta) though she is added because she reminds me of Saint Mary (jungfru Maria) that I’m writing an article about right now.

When I add a photo to my art journal it always makes me think it looks more like a scrapbook page than the artsy look I’m wanting to find, but this photo had to be used, I just like it. It’s a self portrait of me together with Smilla on the floor, snuggling into her fur. Super soft cat, prrr!
