Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing an art journal spread that I have made for the Butterfly Squad Challenge of last week. It is 'a layer a day' challenge where in a week you have a complete spread. You can read about it HERE.
This week it was all about talking nice to yourself. Well, I am not very good at that so this was a little bit of a 'soulsearch' for me ! But that is good, right?

and this is how I did it : 

This is the first layer (Sunday). I added DecoArt crackle paste through a stencil called 'Torned Circle' designed by France. 

On Monday I added these two colours of Fluid Acrylics. 

On Tuesday I glued on these pieces of dictionary text with words that I think apply to me... 

On Wednesday I added DecoArt Antiquing cream to the crackles and Archival ink (PottingSoil) around the edges to grunge it up. 

On Thursday I added some stamping around the edges. I used the London New York set designed by France. 

On Friday I used the Circles stencil and ink to add some more circles. I went around the edges of the circles with a pencil. 

On Saturday I added the last layer(s) which was the sentiment and main image cluster which I made from a piece of dictionary paper, a piece of cambric and 2 stamped images. One is the moth from the Creepers and Crawlers stampset by France and the word 'soulsearch' from the 'Perfect Words' set also by France. 

I hope you enjoyed the process; I centainly did ! 

All stamps and stencils I used are available HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by ! 


  1. Absolutely gorgeous, I adore the crackle and the wording inside the lines, clever. Love the rich warm colour palette too. Tracy ❤️❤️

  3. I enjoyed seeing what you had added each to your pages and noted that less is more. Whenever I do similar things, I seem to add too much and end up feeling like they are rather cluttered. Love the final pages - well done Corrie!

  4. What a magnificent spread, Corrie, and in my favourite colours too!
