April showers bring May flowers

{mixed media art journal page}

Hi everyone, this is my offering for the new challenge 

{I'm a bit late, I know}

This cute image is Umbrella Splash and its by our current sponsor Sami Stamps Shop at Etsy.

I wasn't sure how I was going to use it until I pulled out my art journal and fussy cut the image. {I should stop here and say that I paper pieced her dress, boots and umbrella}. It was then that I saw her splashing in a puddle and remembered the familiar rhyme I learned as a child. The background was created by using various mixed media products such as Calypso Teal Dylusions Ink Spray, Faber-Castell Tropical Gelatos, Wendy Vecchi embossing paste-white over a Tim Holtz Speckles stencil, Adirondack Snow Cap paint dabber, Kaisercraft rub ons and tear drop dew drops. Traveling typewriter is the font I used to create my journaling and I found it on Pinterest some time ago. If you like it you can click the Pinterest link on my right sidebar and go to my Fonts/Typography board and find it there. The paper flowers were in my stash and so were the pearls I used for the centers. 


Prize is a $12.00 gift certificate.

A big thank you to Sami Stamps for supplying the DT with images!

Thanks for dropping by and taking a look at my mixed media art journal page!
