Post 163: Art Journal Page: Sweet Life

Hi Friends :)

How are you doing? Hope your week is going great. Here in Delhi summer is at its peak so schools will soon break for a 1.5 month long summer break, during which time my nephew and niece will visit and I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with them :) 

Today, I'd like to share an art journal page in which I've created layers using decoupage, stenciling and stamping. 

Synopsis of the Process:

I do art journalling in an old diary so I glued 2 pages together and then applied white gesso on them to prep the page. Then colored the background will acrylic paints, then decoupaged the sunflowers from a napkin onto the page using modpodge gloss lustre. Further, did stamping (flowers) and stenciling (script and diamond pattern) . Then added additional details with zig markers, camlin markers and an aqua brush. Adhered sequin butterflies and gold sequins. Chose some stickers with sentiments and added them then created black and white splashes. Then created more depth with water colors and did some additional detailing with a fine tip marker, darkened the edges of the page and added a faux stitch.
