Scrap The Girls April challenge

I really love the mood board for this month's challenge at Scrap The Girls. Being a beach lover this mood board really spoke to me.

I decided to create an art journal page inspired by this mood board so I could add layers and layers of colour. I have a brand new Dina Wakley Media Journal that I was itching to get started in, so I decided to make the very first page a kind of 'title' page as my own motivational piece! 

So here is the final project. I'm so happy with how it turned out.

And a closer look at each side-

So I mentioned layers of colour, here's how my page came together.

I started with some Tim Holtz tissue paper, then added some acrylic paint and sprays.

Next was to add some white gesso, more paint and sprays. Once that layer was dry I added some stamping, some washi and some drips. 

Next was another layer of stamping, paint and sprays. Then for some texture - Colour Paste through different stencils and more Lindy's sprays.

Then it was on with some corrugated card, washi, my photo, some die-cut butterflies and some word stickers.
I added some more Colour Paste and paint to blend it all together.
