Journal Spread with Four Seasons and Carved Whimsy Wood by Mariken

Hi everyone,

Mariken here with an Art journal spread and a tag (from the left-overs) for you.
I hope you like this tutorial!

Here's how I made the Art journal page and the tag.

I used an Art journal page and chose to use Four Seasons and Carved Whimsy Wood stamps.

  I made the background with watercolors, the colors are so beautiful and bright.

Then I used a stencil for some details. I sponged with Wendy Vecchi blendable inks.

After that I stamped with pink Distress oxide some words with Mix a Sentiment 2.  Love them!

I used watercolour paper and WOW! fine white embossing powder to emboss trees, leaves and flowers. Then I colored them with watercolors.

I arranged the leaves, trees and flowers on the page and glued them on.

Finally I used the Grunge Border around the page and stamped the words HAPPY and SPRING on a little piece of pink watercolor paper.

And then...what to do with these beautiful left-overs??
 Use them on a little tag! 


I made just some stripes on watercolor paper and glued my tree, leaves and flower on it.
Finish it with a line with a black marker and some ribbon or twine.

Below you can see the stamps I used.

Please don't forget that we have a Mood Board this month, with lovely colours!
You can find the challenge here in the 
Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge.

Have fun with this tutorial!
Thank you for your visit here and enjoy your day!
