I'm here today to share a journal page with you that I created after seeing Linda Cain's pages over on the Paperartsy blog HERE
So I don't usually do art journaling but it is something I really want to do more often so I took out a brand new journal and here's my take on Linda's pages:
I started by stamping the flowers from the new Darcy plate (EDY10) then used masking fluid to protect them. Next I sponged all the colours onto the background, I used mermaid, bora bora, guacamole, pansy and spanish mulberry.
I stamped the background flowers and leaves from ELB01 in chalk and then over stamped the leaves with tinned peas. I added some highlights to the leaves with my white posca pen. I stencilled the bubbles from PS001 using lake wanaka. I then rubbed off all the masking fluid, I had to go over the stamping here as some of it had been covered by the opaque paint. I gave the flowers and stems a tiny bit of colour and the bubbles a shadow with some spectrum noir pencils.
Finally I stamped the quote from ELB05 onto a blue card die cut, edged with spainish mulberry and black pen and added it to the page.
Hope you're all enjoying the bank holiday weekend if you're in England!
