A journal spread tutorial with Butterfly girl by Saadia Nawaz

Hi Everyone
Saadia here.
I want to share with you an art journal spread today.

Let's start our journal spread.

Step 1:
I applied a coat of white gesso to my journal pages. Gesso prepares the surface for acrylic paints.

Step 2:
I applied Acrylic paints with my fingers and a make up sponge. I applied layers until I was happy with the result.

Step 3:
Next, I did a bit of background stamping with Art defined, Grungy stuff and Think again stamp sets.
I also heat embossed the circles from Grungy stuff samp set at the edges of my spread.

Step 4:
I stamped my Butterfly girl #2 on a white cardstock. I colored her with watercolor pencils. After that I fussy cut her and glued her on to my page.
I also stamped and fussy cut stars from Grungy stuff stamp set

Step 5:
I stamped the sentiment from Think again stamp set onto my page.

Step 6:
Added a bit of highlights with white Gelly roll pen and shadows with a charcoal pencil.

That's all for now

Thank you for your precious time. 

A reminder that we have a challenge that goes all month on our face book page which you can find here.

It is always ANYTHING GOES/ or a colour combo if you wish.

Take care and keep crafting

Very pretty pages. Your step by step is very clear and makes it look easy. I don't usually do JP's but you tempt me to try. Butterfly Girl is rocking this layout. Hugz
