Scrap Matrix Monthly Challenge DT Reveal

Good morning everyone!

I hope that christmas and the new year have been kind to you and that you have all enjoyed a lovely break and got to have a holiday or two.

Today I would like to share the makings of my art journal page that I have created for Scrap Matrix's challenge this month - It is more of a dream page as I have not been away on holidays this christmas time.

Here is  the moodboard for the current challenge which runs til 14th February

I have taken inspiration from the bottom right van and the colours in the board

I began with my art journal and painted one side green and one side blue - at this point I had no idea where I was going but had recently seen the process of using a stencil and pulling the paint up from the page through the stencil using a baby wipe and thought that is where I will start.

So i painted my page using Dylusion paint and before it dried I placed the stencil over the top and pulled the paint by gently wiping with a babywipe.

I did the same with the blue Dylusions paint.

I used two different stencils on the blue page - kind of to get the image of roads with the bottom stencil

Once that was dry I then used White Dylusion paint and a brayer to tone it all down a bit

While it was drying I sat down to read my latest copy of Daphnes Diary magazine and there was a colouring in page of a van - immediately I knew that I wanted to have this as my focal point and began colouring it in with colouring in pencils.

I then stamped Paper Artsy Stamps (I know they were last months challenge but I love them so much and use them over and over again - great investment!) onto watercolour paper and coloured them with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks and fussy cut them out.

I them began to assemble my page and sort out where I wanted everything to go

Once I was happy with the placement, I then glued them all into place using Finnabair 3D Matte Gel (another essential item in my stash!)

At this point I also applied some dimensional magic to the butterfly to make it stand out.

Once the gel was dry, I have used a big brush Pitt pen in black and green to outline and create shadows around the images.  I didnt think they had "popped" enough so it was time to do some doodling with sharpies.

Once I had finished doodling I was happy - the page was complete - oh no I forgot the title.  "Holiday Time in thickers was added and now we were complete - phew - there was alot of colouring in and fussy cutting!!!!!!

Here are some close ups:
