Art Journal: Be Authentic...

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I'm Simona, with  another project for Scrap & Craft DT..

Today I want to show you an Art Journal spread...I love to create Art Journal pages, usually they are quite bulky, but for this new Journal I have made the resolution to go for a 'flat' least I try! Here's the steps...

I have cut two strips from the sheet #4 of 'The Peony Avenue' collection by Studio75, and glued every strip close to the centre of the  pages, then chose a sheet of paper from the beautiful 'Morning Dreams II' collection, by Craft O' Clock, the #4, cut in half , then attached each one  using a stapler.
Used first clear gesso on the spread, then a light wash of white gesso, but not on the flowers.
Added some texture paste using two different stencils, then started adding colours using spray inks, spritzing water to dilute them a bit, always drying between each step.
When I was satisfied I added some stamping here and there with a grey dye ink, then flicked some drops of inks all over the spread.

From sheet #5 of 'Morning Dreams II' collection I have fussy cut few flowers, then started to assemble all the embellishments...Added a picture of a beautiful cat, several die cuts from white cardstock, because I wanted to keep everything clear and soft, some gauze, a paper doily, some thread, and finished with sentiments chipboards.

I have used the following material that you can find in the SCRAP & CRAFT Store:

Thank you for stopping by, hope you got inspired and...see you next time!
