Glass Bead Flowers

Todays art journal post is all about using my new stencil – Poppies and Peonies by Donna Downey in conjunction with my new Dylusions sprays.  Here I started by using Dyan Reaveley’s ghosting technique for the background.

DSC_0001I then mixed some acrylic ink with Glass Bead Gel medium until I liked the color and used the stencil to create the flowers.  I outlined the flowers with a gel pen and added stems and a border with oil pastels.  The butterfly and rub ons are from my stash along with the sticker with the quote.

DSC_0003The centers are accented with perfect pearls.  I topped it all off with some white splatters of gesso and water.
