Art Journal Page "With Brave Wings She Flies" Featuring Stamping Bella's Until Olive

Hi everyone!!!

Hope you're all good. 

Today's share is an art journal page I made a while ago but haven't had time to share. I SO need to do more art journalling. I really LOVE it!! If you haven't had a go before, I urge you to do so, it's so much fun! So freeing and messy!!

This journal page features another one of Stamping Bella's Danielle Donaldson Collection called Until Olive. When this collection first came out, I absolutely loved it but was so nervous about using it so I only got four of them. Crazy or what??!! So it's my absolute mission to collect the rest. They are my perfect stamp for journalling and you can mix and match them with other stamps from your collection like I've done here.

First of all I coloured Olive with copics and added some white gel pen for interest.  I also stamped Dina Wakeley's Scribbly Wings on book paper and coloured with white gel pen and gold Kirarina Wink pen. I then cut both images out.

To make the page I first glued together 2 pages from my old book. I then glued some tissue paper and old book paper to my page and added some masking tape from interest. I then covered the whole page in white gesso. I then took the MFT Heart Stencil and spread some texture paste across it and let it dry. I then sprayed some Lindy's Sprays (let me know if you want to know the colours) with a water spray and let the colours do their own thing. I then added some Gelatos across the page and on the stencilled areas. When dry, I flicked Liquitex White and Picket Fence Distress Spray across the page. 

I then stuck the images to the page using matte gel. I then used a black pencil and black Uniball pen to add doodling and interest to make the image and stencilled areas pop. I finally finished with a few Tim Holtz stickers.

Here's your close up!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I know this is a bit different to my usual cardmaking but I'm hoping you like it as much as I do. See you again soon! xxx
