My Time To Craft Challenge.

Hello my dear lovely crafty friends, Welcome back to my blog.

A very warm good evening to you all. Hope everyone is doing well. 

Welcome back to our first challenge of this year at My Time To Craft Challenge Blog. This fortnight our theme for the challenge is "THANK YOU"

I have created an double page art journal using an decoupage paper. I have selected a beautiful floral bundle image to create it. Flowers and Critters are my all time favourite subject when it come to create anything for myself. 

● First I gave a coat of white heavy gesso on my pages.

● I coloured my background using my favourite colour medium chalk paints. I blended 2 colours using flat brush and little water to move smoothly. 

● Now to add texture I have used 2 different techniques here. First I stamped on both page using script stamp and Hickory Smoke Archival ink and next using stencil and blending tool, I did stencilling on my pages. Highlighted the circle with black pen.

● Now I adhere the decoupage cutout using deco magic glue and added the words using Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers. 

● Finally finished the both page using Washi tape, here and there.

I hope you like it. Please give me feedback so that I can improve myself more.

  1. Those background greens are my favorite colors too. I love how you used that, and then you added those flowers. The colors really pop right off that green. It's a beautiful page Meena. Thanks for joining us again at Art Journal Journey. Hugs-Erika

  4. I LOVE the background and the stencil you used. Lots of great texture, too. There were loads of different techniques, but most of all, I loved the green background and those gorgeous flowers.
