Playing in my Art Journal

 
 
Welcome to the new linky party that just opened at Make It Monday. We have an old favorite, Bugaboo Stamps, as our sponsor this week and I'm using Silhouette-Butterfly on my art journal page. A big thank you to Bugaboo for supplying the DT with images to create with!
 
I created the background by applying Tim Holtz's wax tissue paper with Mod Podge and using ink spray to add some color. Then I stamped around the edges, added some rub ons, and used a stencil to create the raised diamonds. (I mixed modeling paste with tinted Liquitex ink and rubbed it over a few of the diamonds then lifted the stencil and let it dry). The digital image was distressed with antique linen distress ink and dew drops were added to the centers of several flowers. I love this image and what the butterfly symbolizes-new beginnings. :)
