This is my first time for an art journal challenge but I made this for a lovely challenge called 'Special Moments' over
at Art Journal Journey blog
Acrylic paints used were: soft green, canary yellow, sea spray, chocolate brown and deep orange made by Do Crafts.
I found an ivy stencil I'd made years ago when stencilling our house, and using stencil brush used Plaid Folkart ripe avocado and Decoart purple acrylic paint on it and when dry, painted pages over with sea spray paint.
Using the eraser at the end of a pencil, I splodged on white paint.
Pressed a stamp design into some mouldable fun foam and stamped on page with black archival ink.
Covered pages with diluted deep orange paint and wiped some off with a cloth.
Used leaf, tempus fugit and bird stamps which were free from Craft Stamper magazine. Used pear-shaped shading stamp (forgotten who makes that - Stampscapes maybe)
Used pilot pens to write a couple of quotes.
To finish off used several Inktense pencils to colour leaves, bird and various highlights and other areas.
Thank you so much for looking xxx
