April Art Journal: Butterflies, Succulent, and Rainbow

Hello everyone….Today I have an Art Journal Page to share with you. This month, I learn new things and try something new about mixed media technique and I have so much fun when I created this page.

On this page, I experimented with some mediums: Texture Paste, Distress Crayons, Caribbean Color Brust Powder, Black Archival Ink, Stamper’s Big Brush Pens, and Perfect Pearls mixture spray.

I also use the Succulent stencil from Stencil Girl and the new stamp set from STAMPlorations, Trendy Butterfly 2.

To create the rainbow-y background, I sprinkle some powder from the Carribean Color Burst set and spray them with the Perfect Pearls mixture spray. I love the extra texture and colors show appeared after the spraying.

Then I added the texture paste with the Succulent stencil in the middle of the page, dried it with craft heater, and then using my finger I added the blue, teal and purple distress crayons. Then I sprinkle a little of purple and teal color burst in the middle of the succulents and sprayed with the Perfect Pearls spray. Look at the extra shine and pearly look on them 🙂

Then I drew the frame with black Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and colored it with the dark brown Stamper’s Big Brush Pen.

And then I stamped the butterlies randomly on the page with Black Archival Ink. Then I decided to sprinkle a little color burst powder on each of them for extra colors 🙂

I stamped the sentiments on white cardstock with archival ink, cut it out, and added some dark brown frame on each of them using the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen. I added them on the page with 3D foam tape.

I love how it turned out when I finished. With mixed media, I learn to expect the unexpected results 🙂 I hope you can enjoy this page as much as I do.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
