Always Flowers ….

Afternoon, been playing in my art journal with acrylic paints and stamps.

 

 

 

Created the base of the background using acrylic paints, in yellow, orange and purple.

Used various stencils, from Clarity Stamps & Creative Expressions, to add interest to scene using acrylic paints and a make up sponge.

Used various stamps, from Indigo Blu, Sheena Douglass, Tim Holtz & Hobby Art, to add to the background using Archival & Stazon inks in various colours.

Used a white gel pen to add some highlights and emphasis areas of the stenciled background.

Stamped the stems & leaves from Polkadoodles Daisy Days stamp set, using black Archival ink, directly on the art journal page.

On some white card stock stamped the flower heads & butterflies, also from Polkadoodles Daisy Days stamp set, using black Archival ink.

Coloured the flower heads, butterflies & stems with Faber Castell Pitt pens.

Used a script stamp, from Indigo Blu, to stamp over the flower heads.

Cut out the flower heads and butterflies and adhered to the page.

Stamped the quote, from a Card-io stamp set, using black Archival ink. Cut out and adhered to the page.

Used a stamp, from Polkadoodles Little Kingdom stamp set, to create the border at the top and bottom of the page. Coloured with Faber Castell Pitt pens and used a white gel pen to add the dots.
