Dragonfly Journal Page

Journal page with Dina Wakley paints and AALL and Create stamps by Tracy Evans - by Nikki Acton
Some journal play this week in my A4 journal.
I used Dina Wakley paints and stamps from AALL and Create (Tracy Evans). A little different to the butterfly card I made with the same stamp sets! You can see it here if you missed it.

My original journal page was kraft card - but I think it is covered. I stared with random black coverage and white around the edges. I added some scraps of paper and card and both thick gesso and texture paste through 2 stencils (Tim Holtz dot fade and the stripy one!). I then began building colour - mostly with my fingers.

I added random stamping with archival ink from the AAll and Create border stamp set (the random circles) and stamped 3 hearts, the dragonly and words on separate scraps of paper. I added a little colour to these before adding.

The circle was a leftover die cut.

I would like to join the fun at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog:
(I used 2 stencils, gesso, Dina Wakley paints, texture paste and ink)

Have a great weekend.
