Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #24 - Butterflies and Blooms


It's time for another challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Our theme this month is "Dimension." Just create a project that has some dimension. Our guest designer and sponsor is the amazing Ken Oliver!!  He is offering a set of Caribbean Brights Color Burst and a Best Ever Craft Mat to our random winner. What a great prize!
 
I used several of Ken's Color Bursts to create my art journal page. First I stamped my Dina Wakley Stamps with Ranger Black Archival ink. Then I added some Color Bursts with water in a palette and created my own watercolors. I used a water brush to color in the flowers, butterflies and sky. Later, I added some accents with a black and white Stabilo pencils and black and white Dylusions paint pens. I also did some stamping on the blue sky with blue Archival Inks. I hope you will play along with us this month. I can't wait to see what beautiful creations everyone will make. 



I took this picture at night with poor lighting when the page was
still wet before adding any pencils or pens.
