Hello everyone,

For my DT post for Katzelkraft today I made another Art Journal. I love art journaling; I discovered it after I was finished making birthday cards for the year 2012 and was looking for other ways to use my supplies ! The rest is history as they say...

I started with Mixed Media paper on which I put some model paste through a stencil. I then brushed the page with clear gesso. Next I used Lindys Stampgang sprays. I sprayed the page with 'Pop Rock Purple' and then dripped some of the same over the top as well as a white spray called ' Frozen Jack Frost'. The grey at the top and the bottom was done with 'Magicals', also from Lindys; these are basically Mica Powders. I use a wet brush to pick them up from the pot and brush it onto the edge of the paper and then spray it with water so it runs down. The shimmer is awesome ! 
Next I stamped the background with a script stamp from the set with the rabbit and then stamped the rabbit, coloured him with watercolour pencils and a water brush and cut him out with an oval die. I also cut some pattern paper with a bigger die to layer under the rabbit. I adhered both the ovals to the page and then lastly doodled around the page and stamped the sentiment. 

I used the following stamp sets:
