How Does Your Garden Grow??

For the last three weeks I have watched Tiare "Classygirl" Smith's Art Journal Pajama Party on Spreecast. I finally took the first step and purchased the supplies a week or so ago. Today I took the next step and created a page while she provided live instruction as she completed her page.

I am also using this as my Day 2 creation for Embrace Your Art!! Are you ready?? Drum roll.........

The theme is "How Does Your Garden Grow from WK 13 Journal52. 
I used Gesso to prime my page. Going with the theme I decided to have some dirt which is torn paper I adhered to the page. I used several different CTMH stamp sets to complete my page, Dreams Come True, Key Moments, Blessed and Windy Day. The background was created using Reeves acrylic paint. I used a combination of blue and white to get a lighter blue and black and white to get grey. I dabbed the paint with a baby wipe to give it a textured look. I colored the flower and butterflies using a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers. The images are stamped using Black, Desert Sand, Vineyard Berry, Chocolate and Whisper. I lightly sprayed the entire page with Perfect Pearl Mist in Heirloom Gold. To journal my thoughts I went around the edges writing how my garden grows.

I enjoyed this style of journaling and look forward to more pages to come!
