Hi everyone. It's Tracey here to share a new project. For the past year I've been creating pages for a Scripture Art Journal using Donna's fabulous Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Denim Art Journal. I'm adding an Easter page with delicate spring colors featuring Donna's new Spellbinders® Cascading Butterflies die.
Tips and Techniques
There is a beautiful pink/orange color in the background paper flowers that I wanted to pick up for the embellishments, so I mixed wine, pink, and gold pigment powders into a dollop of Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Art Medium and used it to "paint" the Cascading Buterflies cut from a manilla folder. They are adhered to the page with Girlie Grunge Art Medium (uncolored).
One of the great things about this die is that you not only get the Cascading Butterflies, but also get a bevy of little butterflies at the same time. I used them two ways. A few were spritzed with Mixed Berries Smooch Spritz and went back into the spots from which they were cut. Next, I stamped a couple flourished butterflies on the page with Donna's Wisteria Colorbox® Mix'd Media Inx. I colored two of the die cut butterflies with the Pigment Powder "paint" and placed them over the stamped images. I adhered the centers of the butterflies and lifted the wings for dimension.
For texture, I applied light molding paste with a stencil and spritzed with Mixed Berries Smooch Spritz and allowed the mist to dry. I had some leftover pigment powder "paint" that I spattered across the butterflies and textured areas and also spattered with white drawing ink.
The sentiment is stamped with Wisteria Mix'd Media Inx.
To add a bit of sparkle, I applied Clearsnap® Glue Gloss to the center of the grungy round images and sprinkled with Donna's Clearsnap® Pralines & Cream Twinkle Dust Glitter.
Thanks for dropping by! I hope you've been inspired to grab your Donna Salazar goodies and create a mixed media project.
