"A Dream is a Wish..." Art Journal Spread Tutorial

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

I have a journal spread tutorial to share with you today!

Rubber Dance Stamps used here are:

I had few layers of texture paste and Gesso on these pages, before I started.
I applied Red and dark brown acrylic paints with my fingers , randomly on the surface.

Here, you will find, I stamped texture with Vintage Flourishes stamp set and circles stamp set.

As I wanted more color on the pages, I applied orange acrylic paint.

As a focal point, I used two heart stamps from I heart Art stamp set. I stamped them using black archival ink.
I thought, "a dream is a wish your heart makes" from Affirmations stamp set fits perfectly here.
I also stamped text with "Art Defined" stamp.

and I finished my journal spread!

Thanks so much for stopping by
