Hello everybody,

Hope you are all fine !

For my DT post today I have made an art journal:

I have made a little step by step of how I made it, so sit down, have a cuppa and enjoy !

I started with a piece of Mixed Media Paper.

Using a palet knife and some model paste and a stencil I created some texture. 

I used a Time Holtz stencil for this called Flourish. After stencilling I painted the whole thing with white gesso. This gives a slightly softer result..

Now the fun starts.... colour. I used my favourite sprays. 

After spraying, dripping and more spraying and dripping this was the result. 

Next, I put the stencil back on and wiped it with a baby wipe, so the pattern gets a little lighter.

Then, some stamping, a complete list of all stamps used will be at the bottom of this post. 

Time to stamp the main image; I used Versafine ink and black embossing powder to make the image even blacker...

I gave the same treatment to the sentiment. I still thought it needed something more so I added some white pen on the bird and some numbers which I heat embossed with white powder. I also added some washi tape and this is the end result :

I used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
