Page one of my new art journal 🙂

I gave the page a coat of gesso and when dry used some texture paste and a script stencil. Next I added some music tissue paper and sprayed…  painted… blobbed… and then spritzed with water, tipping the page and let it all mingle! (Distress paint and sprays). When all was dry I used Gelato’s for the circles.

To compliment the sentiment, Karma –  what goes around comes around, from Visible Image, I used String Frames from Dusty Attic which were given a coat of  gesso then coloured with Gelato’s.

On the largest of the frames I wound some metallic embroidery thread around and attached all three frames to the page. I remove the lid from Picket Fence Distress Spray and flicked onto my page.

The three large butterflies, also from Visible Image, were stamped onto tissue paper coloured with Distress inks and sprayed with Pearl Diamond Spray and Sparkle. Lastly I added some black glitter glue to the “body” of the butterfly.
