Butterflies on my page...

Hello there, this is Titbelsoeur today sharing an art journal page with you.

First, I have distressed the page with Brushed Corduroy, then glued a very old school book page on it :

 I made my own masking tapes, stamping cogs and watches background stamps on to a piece of tape :

 and sticked them to my page, adding a piece of a used tea bag :

 A coat of gesso, then I stamped Treillis and Dots backgrounds and added brown shadows here and there with a watercolor chalk and a wet paintbrush :

 Then I stamped butterflies on to the background with water-based ink and made them a bit blur in adding some water with a paintbrush which also spread the watercolor below :

  I did the same with the central butterfly I stamped on a white paper, slightly blured and cut out :

And here is my page :

Here are the stamps I used :
Encyclopaedia Botanica
Treillis Background
Watches Background
Dots Background
Cogs Background

Thanks so much for stopping by,
your comments are very much appreciated.
Don't forget to participate in our monthly challenge to win some fabulous Artistic Stamper stamps.

I just love the misty effect of the page, with the butterflies hovering in and out of view - so pretty, and with great atmosphere. Love it!
