SPA - Butterfly Wings

Good morning everyone, I’m very happy to be hosting this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge, the theme I’ve chosen is Butterfly Wings.

I stamped some script on the gelli print background and adhered the images. The green butterflies and fairy wings were cut from some patterned paper and the fairy was cut from a magazine.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely Sunday. xxx

SPA - Texture

  Texture is this weeks theme for the Sunday Postcard Art  challenge.

I used a stencil with some texture paste on the background and coloured it with watered Scribble Sticks, I let it dry and built up layers of colour drying each layer before adding more colour. I painted some tissue paper with white acrylic paint, when the paint was dry I stamped some Stampendous flowers on the side with no paint. I tore round the images and adhered them to the card. I coloured the flowers with Pitt pens and coloured pencils. I added some tissue tape for the Tim Holtz paper doll to stand on, I coloured her dress with pencil. I also splattered the card with silver paint, I’m glad it doesn’t show up on the photo as it looks like snow and I don’t like it,

Thank you for dropping by to take a look, have a lovely week. xxx

Rainbow Colours

Hi everyone, today I have an art journal page to share with you, I’ve made it for the latest challenge at Try It On Tuesday the theme is Colours Of The Rainbow.

The large flowers and leaves were stamped onto card, coloured with Inktense pencils, cut out and glued to the page, I used Art By Marlene stamps . I added an Art By Marlene word sticker.
