I have made another page for my art journal this week.  It features a gorgeous stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Journey

I had fun colouring the image with Copics and then got crafty making the background.

I used kraft card for the base and used ripped tape around the edge to create a blended panel with Distress Oxide inks. I used Speckled eggs, Peacock feather and Mermaid lagoon and then blended Squeezed lemonade over the top using a sunburst stencil.  I then stamped a couple of stamps on top of this.

For the waves I used a wave die with some patterned paper and some paper I created myself with the Distress Oxides and splashed a little water on top.

The sentiment is an old one from Stampin Up, I thought it worked so well with this image. I used a ticket die to cut it out and made a sketchy white border with a gel pen.

W 1, 3, 5, 7

E 000, 00, 13, 21, 33, 35, 37, 43, 44, 47, 53

I got the chance to play with one of the brand new images from Mo's Digital Pencil this week :)

This is Mae. She's super cute and cheeky too.

I decided to make a page with her for my art journal and I had a lot of fun doing it :)

I want to make pages for my art journal which use quotes or sentiments that speak to me and this quote jumped into my mind as soon as I saw Mae.  I was debating whether to also write where the quote was from on my page but I decided against it.  I'm not going to tell because I'd love to see how many people actually know who said it. Please leave me a message if you do :)

So I coloured her with copics and fussy cut her out. Then I had to find some butterfly wings. I spent sooo long searching through stamps, dies, papers, etc and I thought I had so many butterfly things but nothing seemed right until I found this one in an old calendar I had saved. I think it works perfectly with her :)

I cut some black card to fit my journal page and used tape around the sides to create a black border.  Then I blended different blue and green distress oxide inks onto the card and used the same inks with a butterfly stencil over the top.  I added some circular stamps, flicked on some white gesso, added some washi tape and stickers the sentiment and of course Mae.  I used a white pen to draw a border and glued it onto the journal page.

I loved creating this page! It was a lot of fun :)
