Dwell in possibility

 Hi everyone, 

Welcome ! For today's AALL & Create post I have made an artjournal spread. I used some of the new stamps for this; I really think that this release is the best so far, but I think that every time ! 

Here's how:

To start with I painted the pages with Dina Wakley paints and a brush. I used Lemon, Lime, Turquoise and Peacock. Next I toned it all down with white paint an my brayer. I then took the Heapza Hexagons stencil and stencilled first with white paint randomly over the pages.. 

I repeated the stencilling with the Lime and Turquoise paints. 

After toning it down once more with white paint and my brayer I started stamping. I used the same-ish colours ink. I just use what I have; sometimes Versafine Clair, sometimes Distress Oxide inks. 

After test more toning down, I added black paint around the edges with a pallet knife. Next I added some pieces of washi tape and black and white splatters. I decided the background was done. 

Next I stamped my focal point and added a little colour to him. I used watercolour markers for this. I then cut him out. 

I added some more washi tape for the crow to sit on.

I glued him down and added a Tim Holtz word chip as a sentiment. I thought it was quite good in combination with the washi tape. 
I then called my pages done ! 

I hope you enjoyed my post ! Thank you for stopping by !
