What's in my art journal? Fly butterfly, fly

Happy Easter everyone!

Today, I'm sharing a page from an art journal made out of 4" x 6" journal cards.  I started the page with two  light layers of clear gesso.  Once dry, I added some distress stains to it (Spicy marmalade, Mustard seed, and Fire brick red) Then I added some stencils using the same colors from an ink pad.

Tim Holtz plain tissue wrap is wonderful to work with.  I stamped one of his butterfly stamps on it and colored it using distress crayons, then die cut it.  A perfect addition to the page, don't you think?

That's it for me.  I hope you enjoy spending time with your family today.  Until the next blog...enjoy!
