Snow Day Fun too ...

Back again first post of the day was very CAS - something that cannot be said about this post.  This time is all about mixed media and lots of colour ... this is my first (and only) completed art journal page!!  I've mentioned before that I want to do more mixed media projects up until today I've done some tags and ATCs but never an art journal page.  If I'm totally honest I have started a number of pages but have lacked the inspiration and skill to complete them.

I began by cutting a six inch square from a print made on a gel printing plate by layering acrylic paints through a variety of stencils.  I added modelling paste through a stencil and some background stamping,  I die cut the flowers from black card.  The words were stamped on a scrap from another print, edge with distress ink and added to the page.  Finally, I doodled a border to try and pull the design together.

I used:
Gelli Printing Plate
A mix of acrylic paints.
A selection of stencils and mark making tools to create the background.
Decoarts Modelling Paste
Tim Holtz Wildflowers dies.
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Pilot V Ball Grip black pen

I'm entering the following challenge:
