May's Challenge over at the Artistic Stamper.

Hi everyone I hope you are all well in here in crafty land. 
I have my first ever journal page for you.

Jennie asked us over at the Artistic stamper to create a journal page 
this is not something I have ever done before as Off I went!!!

I used Ariondack colour wash sprays mine are very old and they have 
changed the names of the colours but I used butterscotch which
they still do, Denim and Currant (Cranberry Color Wash).

I had painted the page with a cream chalk finish acrylic paint.
then used the colour wash sprays. I used the three colours 
then sprayed with water and heat set.

I applied ultra mat medium over the top. I put clear texture paste through
the Artistic Stamper Swirls stencil. 

The clock face was covered in crackle accents.

I used the various stamps with white acrylic paint and stazon black.

I coloured some white card with distress stain sprays rusty hinge 
chipped Sapphire and red brick.

I stamped the butterfly of the insects plate numerous times 
then heat embossed it.

I attached beads and sequins to the body's of the butterfly's.

I cut them out and fixed them to the page.

I wrote a few words here and there using a black gel pen.

The Artistic Stamper Stamp's and stencils that I used.
  1. Neil Walker, Alphabet Soup.
  2. Insects and Butterflies the main butterfly.
  3. Calligraphic mat 12
  4. Background Stamps Trellis & C75 Lace
  5. The small clock face off Time and keys plate.
  6. New Artistic Stamper Mask's Swirl & Splats and swirls.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about how I created my first journal page as much as I have enjoyed making it. As always let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
