Bloom with Joy

Hi Friends!  It's been a busy day but I wanted to squeeze this post in before the night got completely away from me.  I'm proud to announce I've joined the digital design team at Polkadot Orchard and I'm thrilled to be part of such a talented team.  

I've had a play with Dyan Reaveley Ink Sprays and the Bloom with Joy digital image from Polkadot Orchard to create an Art Journal Page.

To start my page, I sprayed watercolor card with yellow and orange colors, let dry and sprayed white acrylic gloss spray over a Weave patterned stencil.  I did a bit of stamping and added Washi Tape I recently purchased from Love My Tapes on Etsy.  

While allowing the background panel to dry completely, I went to work on the floral image.  I printed on mixed media paper as I wanted to water color the image; the journal page measures 5.75" x 7.75" so I printed the image to fit across the entire bottom of the page.  I loosely watercolored the florals, fussy cut and adhered to the panel.  

The sentiment is included in this digi set and I printed it large so I could trim it into 2 sections, which were adhered flat.  To finish the design, I splattered the entire piece with white acrylic gloss spray and gold watercolor paint. 

Thanks for visiting and I would like to invite you to visit Polkadot Orchard.  There are lots of lovely and adorable designs.  I'm certain you'll find something you love!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
