Touch the sky - mixed media art journal spread

Guest designer Melina here.
Today I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you.

First I put gesso on the spread.
I started with the background using distress crayons that I blended out 
with a wet finger. Then I took a stencil and removed the color in some places 
using a baby wipe.  After that some background stamping with grey Versafine ink.

In the next step I stamped three faces on watercolor paper and then drew 
some whimsical figures. I painted the dresses with watercolor.

I cut out my little ladies and did some doodling on their dresses with a black
permanent pen. Also used a white pen and punched out three hearts that 
I glued down.

I stamped some wings and cut them out as well. I glued the ladies and the 
wings to the spread with gel medium. I finished by doodling their hair and 
adding the quote.

Hope you liked my whimsical spread and thanks for stopping by!
