Forever is composed of nows - art journal page

  Welcome back to another creative week! Today I'm at the Topflight Stamps blog and I'm sharing the steps to an art journal page that features the gorgeous Lavinia Mysticals Mists.

First I gesso'd a page in my Dina Wakley art journal. Once dry, I heavily sprayed the page with Lavinia mists in Bumble Bee and Fruit Sorbet.

Next, I used the AALL & Create stencil "Hung Up on Hearts" with Paper Artsy fresco paint in Twilight. I used the stencil to create the flow of the page, so only part of the stencil is painted.

Then I added some torn strips of washi tape and I used another AALL & Create stencil called Totally Dotty and only sprayed a small section with Lavinia mists in Kingifhser

Of course, I needed to add some splatters! I splattered across the page with Prism Mists in Midnight Black.

Lastly, I grouped together some Mushroom stamps by Katzelkraft and glued them to my page. I also added some small pink beads that I found in my stash.

The page actually came together super quickly. I love using the Lavinia Mists, they make it so easy!

Index Cards for ICAD

  Today I'm on the Topflight Stamps blog sharing some index cards with you all today.

I decided to make 4 index cards, so I started by gesso-ing them all. I've quickly fallen in love with the new Lavinia Mysticals sprays, so I used Amble Green spray and Kingfisher spray over this AALL & Create stencil called Enchanted Garden.

Next, I took some Paper Artsy paint Slimed and Bougainvillea and just did a quick brush of color on each index card.

Once the paint dried, I stamped each index card to add some texture. I stamped two cards with the Dragonfly Post stamp from Crafty Individuals with Versafine Clair in Cheerful. I stamped the other two cards with the Waterfall stamp by Katzelkraft in Versafine Clair Chianti.

I stamped some floral images by Chou and Flowers Memories and Ha-Pi Secret Garden, then sprayed the cardstock with Lavinia spray in Fruit Sorbet and Bumble Bee. Once the sprays dried, I fussy cut the flowers and stapled them on the index cards.

Here are the final pictures of each of my index cards!

Thanks for joining in! Have a creative week ahead :)
