Colorful Thank you !

Sorry for the Delay in posting :( This post should have been published in the morning :( 
Anyways coming to the point,I am sharing my entry for Scrapping for Fun Grand Prize Challenge.We had to create a card based on this sketch.(I have rotated it to right )

Though I love to use stencil on most of my card and projects I have hardly used them to create complete backgrounds.For this card I created the colored panel with stencil n Distress inks.Then I cut it into 3 strips and adhered them on textured black card base.

At this point I was stuck what to add next ,flowers,doily ? No I didn't want the background to loose focus ,Vellum came to my rescue ! I glued few sequins before adhering the vellum strip.Attached a black border to the vellum strip and thin glitter strip for interest.white butterflies to break the colors .Finished off by writing the sentiment with Stickles.

I would love if you could stop by the Challenge and vote for your favorite entry.
Thanks for stopping by :)

Supplies used :
Distress Inks : Mustard seed,Salty Oceans,Picked Raspberry
Stencil : TCW - 6x6 Quatrefoil Stencil
Golden Glitter cardstock
Stickles- black

Art from Heart !

Art Journal cover
YES  !! you have guessed it Right .I have joined the art-journaling bandwagon ! Though I have shared few of my attempts at drawing faces on fb page,Didn't make a proper Art-journal.I used old manual to practise drawing n coloring.Thanks to ongoing Lessology challenge I made one.I have reused papers from various old manuals for it .All papers are plain white on one side and have some text or image on other side.Sharing the steps.

My journal measures 5.5 x 8 inches.Rather than making a separate cardboard cover I made first page as cover page for the journal.I have applied coats of gesso on it ,then textures paste with palette knife .After it was dry used various stencils ,acrylic colors and gelatos drew and pained the heart with wings."ART" is cut from a scrap paper with black texture paste on it .
