Happy Easter

Hi everyone,

It's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge time! The challenge is "Lions and lambs. In other words it's all about the animals, the little ones that are about to arrive into this world, or waking up after a long sleep, of maybe other critters. With Spring around the corner there is so much new life coming!




I was inspired by the new Easter die from the  Simon Says Stamp Hop to it collection. The font is so cool and perfect for an art journal spread. I started with Tissue Wrap and applied a thin layer of Gesso to tone down the text.





With some Gelatos I played around creating sort of a landscape and to ensure that the color remained where I applied it, I covered it with a layer of Multi Medium. Normally I use the same washi tape on both sides but now chosen to use washi tape colors that matches the background. In order to give in a little more dimension but also a bit of contrast with the black and white washi tape. To blend the tape a little more into the background, I went along it with Big Brush Pens for some shade.



For even more depth and interest I made some kind of clouds with the Bubble stencil and Broken China, and with the Mini Arrows stencil and Peeled Paint I created some grass. Love the old rub-ons I found in my stash, those butterflies with the white background are looking amazing on these pages.
