Always know in your heart ....

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I made an Art Journal for the Round Robin that has been organised by Sonja at the Craftorij Facebook page. This is it:

I sprayed watercolour paper with Dylusions in yellow, lime green and turquoise. I then used a stencil with the ghosting method. This is where you put the stencil on the page,  spray water through it and then after a little while you mop up the water with a kitchen roll. It leaves a lighter image of the stencil. I then did some background stamping and decided to glue some tissue paper on here and there. I also used my favourite tool again which is a cap of an old toothpaste tube. The butterflies (Tim Holtz) were stamped on acetate with StaZon and after it dried I stapled it to the page. I used a sentiment from another Tim Holtz set which I stamped on some paper from a paper bag. I tore it out and glued it down on the page on top of some cambric. Lastly I put on some rub ons above and under the sentiment. 

I liked the look of this art journal and decided to make some cards using the same method. I might use them as Easter Cards. Here is a picture :

Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate it ! 

Hope you like them......
