Butterfly art journal page

I’m happiest when immersed in creative play and I’m lucky to be able to share this through social media and in person classes. This coming Sunday I will be teaching how to create this page using a range of different techniques and a couple of mystery kitchen staples.

 

I’d love you to join me! Bella Paperie is located at Shop 33, 302 South Pine Road, Brendale. Phone 3205 5911. Class costs $30 and you will need to book.

 

We will be working in an A4 sized art journal and please have on hand:

  • Dylusions spray inks, please bring whatever inks that are non-shimmery you would like to use. I used yellow, pink & orange sprays but anything non-shimmery will work
  • A couple of your favourite stencils that feature patterns of different sizes which you can use for stencilling with texture paste.
  • Butterfly stencil if you have one or something with an image you would like to add to your page.
  • Shimmery watercolour powders that will be used to paint the butterflies or image of our choice. Lindy’s or Ken Oliver metallic powders are perfect. I will have a limited number of both to share.
  • I’ll bring the quote I have used on my sample printed onto paper, but if you would like to use something different please bring along small stamps, stickers, rubbons for use.
  • Liquitex white gesso
  • Palette knife
  • 1” wide brush
  • Variety of smaller brushes
  • Soft lead pencil (6-8B) & eraser
  • Black permanent pen
    White Sharpie paint pen or white gel pen
  • Gift card for scraping paint
  • spray water bottle
  • Paint palette
  • Non–stick craft mat
  • Baby wipes
  • Paper towel
  • Container for water
  • Heat tool
  • Gloves if you don’t wish to get colour on your hands

Thanks to everyone who entered the Aussie Stampendous blog hop competition last week – congratulations to Crece Thomas!
