Art Journal 7

For this months Creative Dreams Art Journal I've tried something new for me again.  This is a great place to try out new techniques and combinations. The theme for this journal was 'Attitude of Gratitude'.

I started by placing a stencil over the pages and painting with gesso, which created the 'resist'.  Next came Dylusion Ink sprays - London Blue, Dirty Martini & Lemon Zest.  Once I had the spread and colours I wanted and all was dry, I attached the roses & butterflies (serviettes again).  I then stamped on the leaves which I painted, and stamped around the edge with a Dylusions stamp. 
The saying came last "Some people grumble that roses have thorns, I am grateful that thorns have roses - Alphonse Karr", kind of puts everything into prospective I think.
These pages actually didn't take too long to make even allowing for the drying time and for a change the ideas came quite easily.  This was a fun page to make, I enjoyed the processes and I'm sure I'll do something similar again.
Thank you for visiting.
