Art Journal

I created this page at the same time as the tag for the Stampotique challenge as you can see by the similar colours. I began by transferring a photo and had to glue pages as was a bit gunky and then added gesso and china blue distress stains.
More distress stains and splodges and wet wipes
Some doodling and mini butterfly stamped smudged with posca white pens, I stamped a Paper Artsy flower over the thistle image in black felt it was much to harsh and added some titan buff paint and white doodles.
I hid the more personal journalling under the paint layers and then added the title. I stamped Paper Artsy Butterfly and Dragonfly on some paper I had altered with paint.


  1. Lovely to see the progression of your work here. Great colours and a great result. Isn't Gesso brilliant? xxx

  2. This is fabulous, great idea to hide your personal journaling. I'm always a bit wary of putting too much paint and gesso on my journal, but I'm going to have to be a bit bolder and go for it! x
