Art Journal Swappin' Update 1

I already received my first journal to work in!!!  It had a mood board with purple, gold and turquoise...butterflies, peacock feathers and sequins.  It was about dreams.

Tattered Angels and Color Shine mist create the backgound along with my favorite UWS star confetti mask and gold crackle paint.  I also used lots of gesso!! The UWS layered stars are covered in gold crackle paint and outlined with my trusty sharpie.  The large butterfly is stamped in archival ink several times is VLVS! butterfly spotted stamp.

I just love all of the dripping!!

VLVS! butterfly specimen stamp fussy cut after I watercolored is with my Lyra watercolor crayons.  I adhered them on top of layers of drywall tape, gesso and May Arts ribbon.

I wrote with thick acrylic paint and after it dried I doodled around a word and smeared gesso on the rest.

This journal will be off to it's next destination in a couple of weeks and I will be receiving one to take its place at about the same time...  Check back soon to see what that theme will be!!
