Coffee & Friends - Sarah's Monochromatic Art Journal Layout

Hello Crafty Friends!
How's the weather in your part of the world? Down here in Oz winter is FINALLY here.... what a great excuse to drink more coffee! 
Today Sarah takes inspiration from the never-ending rain and creates a coffee-rainy Art Journal Layout. All in yummy shades of coffee....errr ......I mean....brown.

Hi friends! I don't know about you but I could do with a warm drink at the moment. The weather here is getting colder each day, and the rain hasn't let up all week. Cold weather and hot drinks seem to go well together, so I thought I'd combine them in this project... with a bit of a twist!

To start my art journal layout I used my prima watercolours to create a light brown background. I then dripped a darker brown down the page to add depth and then added a stencil layer. Using the splash stencil from the kit, I combined the DecoArt texture paste with some dark brown acrylic paint to create a coffee rain. I then stamped the sentiment from the sizzzix coffee set in black ink. 

In the bottom corner of the page I added some of the coffee time washi tape from the kit and painted over it with watercolours to blend it in with the rest of my brown-toned page. 

The main feature of this layout is this beautiful gorjuss girl that I painted with watercolours. Isn't her little umbrella adorable?! 

And here's the finished page here. I love that the little gorjuss girl is keeping the coffee from splashing on her. And even though brown tones might be boring, there's something really elegant about creating a monochromatic page. 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this project and might be inspired to create your own journal page.
