To start, I gessoed the journal pages then stamped some designs using Tim Holtz and Paperbag Studio Journaling Stamps and Grunge Stamps. I stamped them using Archival Black Ink. I then used soft pastels to create the background. I used oil pastels to turn the stamped circles into flowers and outlined them using a charcoal pencil and acrylic paint in pearl white. The butterflies are actually some old rub on stickers I had stored in a box. I wrote the quote using a black sharpie calligraphy pen and sealed the pages using simple hairspray. Hope you enjoy this and I look forward to posting more art journal pages and cards soon! Have a great day!
