Art Journal Page :)

Art Journal page from me this morning to share inspired by this quote from Jennifer Grace on her Onwards and Upwards Blog Event.
And inspired by Vicky Papaioannou's Art Journal Style and this page in Particular. Check out her blog and amazing Videos which are stunning.
Well on to my Page:

I painted the pages with Gesso first and then a some Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Paint. 

I used Kaisercraft Tropical Water and Dylusions Dotted Flowers 5x8 Stencil to add some dimension.

I used  some Bird and Cloud Stamps which I got free with the New Magazine that has come out called Get Stamping. I stamped the clouds on to paper and stuck them down and used Texture Paste to add texture.and went round them with Sky Blue and Black Promarker to make them stand out. 

For the Quote Soar Higher Every Second Is A Chance To Change Your Life I found a font called  Baroque  Script from 1001 Free Fonts site that I liked and copied it first in pencil and then went over it with my Black Promarker and then Azure Promarker. 

The Balloon was another free stamp from the set which I stamped on to paper coloured in with Lipstick Red, Gold, Mulberry and a Green Promarker and then stuck down and went over with Glossy Accents. This was fun especially on the second Balloon I did my youngest cat trod on it before it was dry and left a foot print so I had to add more in the hopes it would be ok lol. 

The houses were another stamp from the free set. Again I stamped on to paper, cut them out and coloured them in can't remember colours off the top of my head this time lol for all the bits I used Soft Medium Gloss to stick them down and gave a coat over just to make sure they actually stuck down for good. I only used a thin layer so they aren't that shiney. Oh and I also dabbed some Blue Stazon ink on the brazed side of a Script Embossing folder to use as a stamp. At first I wasn't sure as it hadn't worked as well as I had hoped but now the whole page has come together I am rather pleased. 

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to reading peoples comments :)
