Your Compass by Cheetarah

Hi VLVS! lovers, it's Cheetarah here and I'm thrilled to be back as a guest designer this term. I hope the new year has started off well for you.

Today I would like to share an art journal page. It's inspired by this wonderful quote from Cat Kerr which is a stamp in the awesome VLVS! quotes range. It says "let fear be your compass, if it scares you, move forward." I think it's a bad-ass bold statement and definitely aligns with my new year's intention not to back away from new things even though they might scare me at first.

I have a washi tape that suits this theme also perfectly which says "you are here" and the dancing lady on top of it is moving towards unknown scary territories. The background has yummy mixed media stamps which is embossed gold over a black background. When you move the page in the light though, you get some interesting effects.

You can see an array of color (possibilities) when you shift the page into the light, which is made with the use of interference paints. While I was making this page I had the camera on so you can see the process of it in the video below.

Hope this inspired you to take out your VLVS! stamps and do a bit of art journaling.
Have an awesome day.
