Friend with Flair Friday

This week for my Friends with Flair project I made another mini art journal page. To make this page I covered the page with patterned paper and covered with DecoArt DecoPage. Then I stamped a Unity Ruler Stamp and the Burlap background stamp on the background in Watering Can Archival Ink. I also added some circles and other images with a TCW Stencil.

I wanted to tone down the backgound so I swiped Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picket Fence across the background a few time to make the stamped images a little more subtle. Then I spritzed some Dylusions White spray on the page. Then I stamped the flower in Black Versafine Ink and colored it in with Stamper's Big Brush  Pens and went around the edges with the white Big Brush Pen. To add a little color I rubbed on some blue, green and lime Gelatos in the background. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, it's from the same Unity set as the flower. Then I sprayed Slate Gray Dylusions spray to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Very pretty! Your background is especially lovely. I just added a few more Dylusion colors to my collection and I passed up the grey and brown but now wished I hadn't because your use of that grey looks wonderful!
