Simon Says : It's a Stitch Up (stitching real/or faux)





Hello Friends

Today I am sharing my second post as the Spotlight Designer for the Simon Says Monday Challenge. The theme is It's a Stitch Up ( incorporate stitching real or faux ) 




I will be posting special Spotlight Designer posts every Monday this month for the Simon says Monday Challenge





The theme for this week is It's a Stitch Up and I created an Art Journal page titled  'Imagine the Possibility' in my Journal. 

1. I started with a mixed media card stock and added a coat of matte medium.
2. I added texture with Tim Holtz flourish stencil and Crafters workshop Art is stencil
3.also added some random die cuts and circle cut outs on the background using matte medium

  After the modeling paste dried, I started adding colors straight with the mini distress ink pads in Picked Raspberry, Evergreen Bough and Mustard Seed. I blended the colors a bit with the water brush and a wet tissue. 



I then die cut and embossed the butterflies using the Tim Holtz butterfly duo die and embossing folder. I colored the butterflies with the same colors of Distress inks and stamped with a text stamp by Bo Bunny and Archival ink in Black, edged the cut butterflies with black archival ink 


I added some stamping on the background too, also dry brushed white gesso in some areas to tone down colors and also to create some movement in design


I stitched the butterflies with a black thread on my page,added micro beads in black with Gel medium and the sentiment  ' Imagine the Possibility' using the Tim Holtz chit chat stickers 


 Added black paint splatters and some Gold metallic wax on the butterflies and black beads.......
