Exploring Nature World Art Journal Page with an announcement!

Hello friends!

Time for an art journal page and an announcement!

This is my first ever DT post for Cut It Up challenge blog! I am so excited and thrilled! The owner  Evelyn Holmberg  is such a sweet person and when she asked me to join how can I say no :)D and feel honoured!

This is my first ever Art Journaling try in mixed media! Hope you all like it and inspire to create yours! A lot of colorful layers of paint, stamping, stencilling, texturing and die-cutting!

One thing I found myself really enjoyed when it comes to creating an art journal page using Inspirational quotes. They are a great way to opening our minds to self-reflect in everyday life!
My page is inspired by all the nature elements, sunshine, summery, bright, full of blooms and let the butterflies exploring the Nature World what lives within it.

Firstly, I started  I to create my background using yellow and copper color ink. I love to mix and match all kinds of mediums.

 I applied a thin coat of gesso all over the page and then created my textured BG mixing these colors. You can see how bright, shiny are they and love the copper color shimmer. On the left side of the page stamped some butterflies in archival ink.

 I mixed the copper color in the texture paste and applied through Tear dots stencil and created a sunbeam at the top right.

And on the right side of the page, this time I created the BG first using bubble wrapper sheet for experiment and then applied the stencil using texture paste, I got the same result as like the first one!

Then stamped the butterflies. I added some gelato colors using lime green, orange and red, Colored my butterflies.

Then stamped the sentiment from the same set and color those lips. In the end, finished it off with a die cut sentiment-explore, some flowers, sticker butterflies and chit chat sentiment stickers!

Hope you all enjoyed my first ever Art Journal page!
