So let's get this party going with a dreamy, pastel candy floss inspired Art Journal page. I made a conscious effort not to use strong vibrant colours and experiment with soft pastel and this is the result:
The butterflies, coloured with Copics, are from the Just Butterflies DL sheet. I cut them out and adhered to the page with Ranger Multi Medium. I added some white dots and slapped on Stardust Stickles. That lovely sentiment is from Butterfly Dreams A4 sheet, stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.
The little dragonfly silhouette is from the Butterfly Blush DL sheet, stamped with Archival Dandelion ink. To add some background interest, I stamped the leafy stalk from Briar Rose Butterfly A5 sheet, with Archival French Ultramarine ink. The script from Mini Scripts A6 sheet, stamped with Archival Magenta Hue ink.
The white swirly design is from the Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet, stamped with Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Wicker White #901. I also splashed some watered down paint to the background. And yes... I added sequins. Don't ask why.
The background was fun to create. As always, I primed the page with Faber Castell Gesso and when completely slapped on Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Rose Pink #632, Baby Pink #633, Cameo Blush #4657, French Vanilla #431 and Linen #420. I also did some stencilling with TCW Mini Daisy Cluster and Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Hot Pink #634. And to finish, droplets of Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.

So that's another Art Journal page done. It's been one year since I started this journey and I'm still learning and experimenting. And loving every minute. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day.
