For today's AALL & Create project I have made an art journal spread in one of my smaller journals. It measures about 15 x 11 cm and is by Hahnemühle. It turned out a little busy but I think I quite like it.
Here's how I made this:
I made the background with oil pastels; adding vertical stripes of colour in rainbow order. Of course it turned out way to bright to my liking so I used a brayer and white paint to tone it down. I then heat embossed this stamp over the top.
Next I added some stencilling using inks and this Dahlia stencil. I tried to keep to the rainbow again using the same - ish colours as the background.
Next I stamped the background randomly using grey and black Versafine clair.
If it wasn't busy enough.... lol I added some washi tape.
I used this butterfly as a focal and coloured it with Copic Markers.
Next I stamped some of the words of this stamp to use as a sentiment.
And that finished it off.
