Hi everyone!!! Lovely to welcome you here and hope you are having a wonderful day.
I have another page from my Art Journal to share with you. I have to admit this has taken me quite a while to put together. I've worked on this between doing other projects so it's been lying around on my craft desk for a few weeks.
For the background I inked the paper with Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain.
The stamping was done with Versafine Vintage Sepia. The stamps used are Kaisercraft's Arty and Bubble Background and also a script stamp from Prima. I added a couple of strips of washi tape and then added a little texture with TCW's Mini Tile Texture Template.
The butterflies were cut from cardstock with the Memory Box Darla Butterfly Die. I then coloured them with the same Distress Inks and stamped them with the Prima script on one side and a small Hot off the Press stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black. An idea I found on Astrid Maclean's Blog. You can find her blog HERE. I also coloured the image on the butterflies lightly with Reeves Water Solluble Wax Pastels. The trails were done with the wax pastels too and the white dots were done with a gel pen. This was an idea I found on an Art Journal Tutorial by Gabrielle Polacco. You can find her blog HERE.
I went around the butterflies with the Reeves pastels in white so they would stand out a bit more and also did a bit of doodling around the edges but, unfortunately the pens I have wouldn't work too well over the wax so I couldn't finish.
For the circles I simply used the cap of my Scotch Glue tube as a stamp. I dipped it in Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then again in Gesso. The hearts were drawn with the Reeves Pastels.
A couple more close-ups ...
and Voila!! It's done. Actually, it's not quite done. If and when I find a decent pen I will finish the doodling and I may also add a quote but I'm not sure about that. I kinda like it as it is.
Thank you so much for visiting and I would be really pleased if you could leave me a few words to let me know what you think. That would be lovely.
Please take care and God Bless.
