I decided on a journal page and started with the usual base coat of Gesso. Then I started to stencil with Fresco Finish paints. Apologies for the lack of step x step photos by my rechargeable batteries for my camera have decided not to recharge so I had to take some hurried last minute shots with my mobile !
While having a sort out in my craft room I came across a set of Artistic Stamper stamps which included lots of insects so this is where the thought process began. I grabbed several shades of Fresco greens and started to stencil. I also used Marlin which is a wonderful deep blue for the dots, then knocked it back with some Snowflake Fresco Finish.
This sentiment is one of my favourites and is by Yvonne Blair, I thought the little snail sat beautifully on the top and the grasshoppers sneeking a look around the side.
I've really enjoyed using the Prima Mini Art Stones and I used the Sculpture Medium to glue them to the page. When they were dry I spinkled on some Infusions then spritzed them with water and let it run down the page. I stamped some of the insects from the Artistic Stamper set then framed the page with Zucchini Fresco Finish. I love the ease at which a journal page comes together and no matter what you had in mind to begin with it always turns out differently, well for me it does !
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to Stamps and Stencils to see the rest of the DT's beautiful projects.
