Post 169: Art Journalling - Love (mom)

Hi Friends :)

I'd like to share some art journalling I did on a paper bag. I will be doing this on a few bags and then binding them at the end to make a new journal for myself :) This page was inspired by mother's love. I used sprays, watercolors and acrylics here and did stamping and stencil work, also added shimmer with some sparkle and sequins. I really like the splatter created by the gesso. 

List of Supplies:

For Stamping:
Stamplorations Stamp- Trendy Butterflies 2
Rubber Dance Stamps (for background texture)- textured flowers and textured spring
Crafty Scrapper Stamps (lady silhouettes)
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Snippets of Iris White CS

For Stenciling:
Artplorations Stencil- Tribal Weave
Carabelle Studio Stencil- Chiffres

Cutplorations Die- Trendy Spring Blooms Die (leaves)
Dress My Craft Sequins
Silver Glitter- Studio G
Bandage for texture
Alphabet Foam Stickers
Timholtz Chit Chat Stickers

Prima Finnabair Heavy White Gesso
Hero Arts Neon Ink- pink
Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays (flat fabios)- Poppin Pink and Urban Amethyst
Little Birdie Color Splash Sprays- Black Currant and Hot Pink
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
Camlin Acrylic Paints

Palette Knives

Here are a few pictures of the page:
