I saw pink and thought of you.
Good morning crafty friends ~ I have a pretty pink entry in my art journal to share with you today. It all started with this beautiful background paper from Spellbinders Flea Market Finds Florals Palette.
I was struck by the bold pink flowers and vines cascading across the paper.
I started the process by using a Brick Stencil and a craft spatula, applying Translucent Distress Texture Paste over the stencil all around the border of the page. Once that dried I added Picket Fence Distress Paint over the top. Using a damp paper towel, I wiped the paint off the brick, allowing the paint to settle between the bricks like mortar. I love how the colors of the printed paper show through the translucent bricks, with a faint white detail between them.
Using a Tim Holtz Specimen die, I created the butterfly slide, adding stamped images from Cathe Holden's Sign Here stamp set. The Delicate Dogwood die cut flower is from Poppystamps. I colored it using Copic markers and stamped it with a script stamp.
I added some ephemera pieces from Flea Market Finds Coat Check Miscellany and Meadow Lark Miscellany, after distressing the edges of each piece with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. See those pretty vellum flowers with gold details?? Those are from Pinkfresh Studio Garden Bouquet Washi.
I added some stitched lines to the left side of the page that was from an old rub-on, but I messed it up when I was painting and rubbing the bricks, so I covered them with a strip of glitter washi tape. I love how this page turned out. In fact, I'm tickled PINK about it!!
I hope you like it too.
