Because We All Need to Bloom: Art Journal Page

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well and enjoying the later Summer sun. Today's post is a dose (that was snappy, go me!) of WOW! inspiration for you. I decided to try out the new Hey Little Flower and Just Saying stamps combining them into an art journal page

Firstly I applied a layer of clear gesso to my page to protect the pages then once this was dry I added paint and watercolor ink for my colour base. Into the wet paint and ink I added pinches of Silver Stratosphere and Blueberry Cheesecake embossing powders which I heated to melt.

Once happy with the arrangement I stamped various flowers from the Hey Little Flower stamp set around the pages with black ink and WOW's clear slow drying ink pad. I sprinkled Metallic Copper and Pink Lady over the wet ink and set with a heat tool.

I filled some of the petals with a chalk pen and some with WOW's clear embossing pen, which enable me to add embossing powder into those fiddly areas!  

 I finished off with some more stamping from the Just Saying set, doodles and journal scribbles.

I hope you will be inspired to try using your WOW stamps and powders for something a little different like journalling and don't forget to join in this month's challenge.

Have a creative day
