Grow - Art Journal page

Hello Everyone,

Here comes my second project with The Crafters Joyride design team.

I created Art Journal page ...
with Kaisercraft Limelight collection and Distress sprays.

here is the making procedure..

I started with adhering strips and pieces of papers from limelight  collection on the base.
I gave first coat of white gesso. When it was dry, I sprinkled ground espresso distress stain and when it dried, I gave second coat of gesso.

I did the same procedure like above with Mustered seed distress stain spray.

Here you will see I stamped text and texture with Kaisercraft stamps and Ranger black archival ink

Next color layer was with Twisted citron distress spray and again gesso.

Finally with more sprinkles of ground espresso, my background looked like this.

I chose picture of flower stem as my focal point. I layered it on few more papers from Kaisercraft Limelight collection. I've also added embellishments - metal filigree, butterflies stickers, sequins.
And the quote is - "from little things big things grow"  

On the other side of the page, I attached Pull handle knob and butterfly.

And this is whole page look like.
I enjoy making journal pages, hope you liked this too!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
