DMC Art Journal Page

Design Memory Craft is having a Pinterest contest, you need to use two of their products on your project.
I am linking up at Balzer Designs this week, you should hop over and look at all of the awesome projects!

The blue/green flowers on this page were made by pushing Faber Castell Gelatos through a Crafters Workshop Mini Mums stencil direct from the stick and then moving the color around with water. I left the color piled up around the edges for dimension. The yellow flowers were made with the same stencil using Golden Glass Bead Gel mixed with Liquitex acrylic in Bright Gold and Basics acrylic in Cadmium Yellow Medium, then highlighted with Faber Castell Pitt Pen #268. 
The background is stamped using a Studio G stamp with Faber Castell Pitt Pens in blues and greens. Tim Holtz tissue tape was applied next, then more stamping with another Studio G stamp and Staz-on black ink.
The bird is cut with Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary die out of chipboard, stamped and heat embossed. Then two layers of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint and Archival Sepia Ink.
