Wings art journal pages

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Paper Wings Productions blog and I’m super stoked to share a DT inspiration project using Art Textures stamp setBird Beauty stamp setVintage Cuties Clip Art SheetFlower Power stamp setWings stamp set and Mini Wings stamp set. I created my first-ever art journal pages and am very happy with how they turned out!

I began by stamping random textures in black ink from the Art Textures stamp set over both pages and around the edges. I then brushed gesso over both pages and let dry. I rolled a thin layer of pink acrylic paint (red and white mixed) with a brayer over both pages and let dry.

Using a spatula, I applied opaque matte texture paste over a stencil in several places on both pages. When dry, I spritzed a little water and sprayed the Cranberry ink. I let the ink run in some places and lightly blotted it in other places.

I stamped the sentiment on the lower right page and then splattered watered-down black gesso over both pages.

I layered a vintage cutie on pearlized cardstock and then again on some torn cardstock, sewed around the edges, and adhered it to the left side. I stamped and fussy cut one large and two small butterflies, colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and added some Shimmer Pico Embellisher to all the wings.

I also stamped two yellow flowers and two pink flowers, fussy cut them and added Shimmer Pico Embellisher to those as well. I adhered the butterflies with Tim Holtz gam spinner bodies and the flowers.

Here’s one final shot – a close-up of the sentiment. I just love this!
