Wings art journal pages

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, my very first set of art journal pages! I'm super excited about how these turned out! I used Art Textures stamp set, Bird Beauty stamp setVintage Cuties Clip Art SheetFlower Power stamp setWings stamp set and Mini Wings stamp set.

I began by stamping random textures in black ink from the Art Textures stamp set over both pages and around the edges. I then brushed gesso over both pages and let dry. I rolled a thin layer of pink acrylic paint (red and white mixed) with a brayer over both pages and let dry. Using a spatula, I applied opaque matte texture paste over a stencil in several places on both pages. When dry, I spritzed a little water and sprayed the Cranberry ink. I let the ink run in some places and lightly blotted it in other places. I stamped the sentiment on the lower right page and then splattered watered-down black gesso over both pages.

I layered a vintage cutie on pearlized cardstock and then again on some torn cardstock, sewed around the edges, and adhered it to the left side. I stamped and fussy cut one large and two small butterflies, colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and added some Shimmer Pico Embellisher to all the wings. I also stamped two yellow flowers and two pink flowers, fussy cut them and added Shimmer Pico Embellisher to those as well. I adhered the butterflies with Tim Holtz gam spinner bodies and the flowers.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment. Love this!
