I made an Art Journal Page celebrating summer with big blooms, bold colours and plenty of glitter and shine. The background started with layers of gesso and acrylic paints. When completely dry, I stamped little twigs from Chocolate Baroque's Wild Meadow A4 stamp sheet with Saffron Archival Ink. Then I applied Ranger Texture Paste over TCW Mini Daisy Cluster stencil. To finish I lightly dabbed yellow and gold paint with my finger for that sun-kissed look.
Here's a closer look at the blooms. These are single stamps by Chocolate Baroque and I've used 3 different blooms called Daisy Ring Centre Flowerhead, Swirl Centre Flowerhead and Dotty Centre Flowerhead. I coloured the blooms with Distress Inks and rubbed some Distress Micro Glaze to fix the inks. And for that celebratory pizzazz I adhered gold glitter foam in the middle of a couple of the blooms.
The letters for Bloom and Shine are die cuts and I used Lawn Fawn's Cole's Alphabet dies on some blue glitter foam.
