Friends are flowers

As promised ( albeit a day later than promised) here are my journal pages and tag that I created for Lynn's circle journal.

The lettering was handcut from patterned paper, some of which I had altered with pen detailing or stamping

The flowers were stamped in acrylic paint and then painted in three different shades, the sentiment stamp on the tag above is a Tim Holtz one that I stamped in black archival ink and then highlighted with a white gel pen

A close up of the yummy texture of the acrylic paint, the background was created with a first layer of spray inks, which was dry-brushed with gesso, then glimmer misted in mocha, then I used a mask to create the hexagon detailing with chocolate ink and finally the diamond pattern was stamped in black ink, before the flowers were painted and the lettering was added. I finished with some tiny mulberry flowers with liquid pearl centres.

Next up I have this weeks two class cards, we made a multi-layered flower on this first card and I taught everyone how make a double looped bow.

And on this weeks second card, we used a pretty Marianne design basket filled with flowers.

And thats it for tonight, tomorrow is Stampin' Up and YeeTing has some beautiful cards planned so I will be back tomorrow to share those.
