Live in the moment

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blog and this post for Visible Image. I decided to do an art journal for this post and this is what it looks like :

These pages were started by painting 2 layers of Gesso. When this had dried I applied some model paste through a Tim Holtz stencil. Next I used 3 different colours of Lindy's Spray Inks, 2 blue and 1 green) and sprayed them mainly over the model paste.  I let it drip towards the spine of the book. I also added some drips over the whiter part of the pages for some more interest. 

Next I stamped one of the 'Scratch the surface' stamps 3 times right over the model paste on each side. I used VersaMark for this and then used a white WOW embossing powder and melted it with the heat gun. These were the 'platforms' for the dragonflies to sit on.

Around the areas of colour I stamped one of the stamps from the 'orbital' set with dark blue Archival Ink. The dragon flies were stamped on white card stock with StaZon ink and then painted with Silks. These are very translucent so you'll still see the stamped lined. I added holographic embossing powder over the wings and clear powder over the bodies of the dragon flies and heat embossed. I think they look absolutely fabulous ! 
The were then cut out and glued down on their little platforms... the wings were left unglued. 

A detail of the dragon fly. Love all the sparkle !
