Art Journal Butterfly

Today I am sharing a new spread in my art journal on which I used three stencils by Balzer Designs for Crafter's Workshop (Mini Zinnia, Mini Flower Garden, and Hexagon). The Frilly and Funkie Challeng Blog has a challenge going on right  now to use stencils on your project and I am entering this spread there. The tree branch with flowers is also a stencil. It is made by Delta Creative.

This side is the back half of a butterfly which, when opened will have Zentangle patterns on it which I haven't completed yet. The butterfly is cut out of the books pages so the background you see is actually the page previous to the butterfly pages. This portion of the butterfly has a base of scrapbook paper with gesso over it. The stencils are done with Pan Pastel and Staz-on ink. The bird at the bottom is stamped with Ranger Archival ink on a stamp by Inkadinkadoo. 

The base on this side is a napkin with a petal edge. The hexagons are a Balzer Designs stencil done with Staz-on Ink. The tree branch and flowers are acrylic paint mixed with modeling paste. The flower centers are Ranger Perfect Pearls. There are various stamps for texture and the title stamp is done with letters by Close To My Heart.

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments!
