Hello crafty friends! Today, I am sharing an art journal page that is sure to bring some sunshine and smiles with its fresh greens, sunny yellow flowers and a sparkly butterfly. Makes me feel like spring is just around the corner.
I made this one on Strathmore 8 x 6" mixed media paper for a page in my loose page art journal. I used a variety of different techniques from emboss resist, watercolour stamping, heat embossing and fussy cutting. Full step-by-step instructions can be found on my post on the Magenta Blog here.
