Youth is a Gift- Art Journal Page by Shilpa

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,
I've a face art journal page to share with you ..

I've used Artistic stamper 'Age' stamp, Gelli Plate, Small Tattered flower Sizzix die  and new distress ink colors.

I've created the background for this page with  Gelli Plate, here is small tutorial..

I took out Gel medium from the box with my palette knife on Gelli plate, as it is very sticky. Rolled it with my brayer.

I kept flower stencil on it, on that paper and took the Gel Medium print.
You need to wash your stencil immediately or it will get spoil. Or keep them in water until you finish your project.

 I applied Mowed lawn distress stain with its dauber. Its very easy to color big surfaces with distress stains. I like to add Picket fence distress stain in my other color to get color variations on the surface.

I cut out my standard size (6*6) for face journal page from that Gelli print . 

In this closeup view, you will find texture stamping and stenciling with Hickory smoke and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks.

And these cute little flowers are made with Sizzix Tiny Tattered flowers. If you are interested to how I made is the link to Anna Karin's Video tutorial.

I stamped face with Wendy Vecchi Forget me not Archival ink.
Finally I adhered them all together on my small page.
hope you liked my today's project.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
