Guest Artist- Diana

Hi there my name is Diana Rivera of and I'd like to show you how I made this mixed media art journal page. 

First, you're going to have to gesso your page.
After that, add a bit of acrylic paint. I used a spray bottle that I happen to have, with watered down acrylic paint. You can use watercolors as well, if you want to.

Then, get your stamps out. I used some fun day of the dead stamps, and blue pigment ink. 

I used the stamps to create a layer on the background. After that, I cut out a watercolor painting of mine. You can use a template online, trace it and color it in, if you're not confident in your drawing skills. 
Then, the butterfly is pasted on. 

After that, I added a bit of pen and ink, and stamped a beautiful butterfly on the page. 

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed my project today!
