Simply Being Me in Annabelle's Journal

It was my turn to Be You (Me) in Annabelle's Round 5 Journal.  I usually approach my art projects with a K.I.S.S. attitude, plus my time was a little limited this month.  Nature is one of my biggest inspirations so of course there would be color, leaves, flowers and butterflies.  Collage, Stencils, Stamps and my favourite color mediums made the mix too.

I started by printing out a butterfly collage sheet and adding some base color to the journal pages using my Pan Pastels.

Next some randomly chosen Stencils from The Crafter's Workshop and more Pan Pastels.

Dylusion Stamps were used to add some leaves and a border to the pages.  Once more Pan Pastels were used to add some Color.  Once finished playing with the Pan Pastels I sprayed with a Fixative/Sealant.

Next I stuck down some butterflies to the middle of my journal spread.

Still wanting more color I turned to some Paper Artsy Flower Stamps and my Distress Oxide Inks bring in more elements of nature and I used a Posca Paint Pen to add a touch of color to my stamped border and finishing with a few more butterflies and a Quote from Tim Holtz.

Annabelle's Journal will hit the post and head South on to it's next contributor Louise tomorrow!
