Scrapbook Boutique~April 2016 Moodboard Challenge

Pretty Pink Art Journal page

It's been way too long since I've joined in with the lovely ladies at Scrapbook Boutique!!  Thankfully my mojo has returned from it's recent sabbatical, and I've been able to play along with their awesome April Moodboard Challenge:
Obvious themes for me to take away from this gorgeous Moodboard are "pink" and "roses".  Armed with that in mind, I set about making my Art Journal page:
[At my husband's request, the face in the photo has been distorted...]
There is a lot of layering of acrylic paints with this spread, and stencilling of both paint and texture paste, as well as employing the 'transfer technique' to get my photo onto the layout.  I've been learning a lot of these techniques from the awesome Wanderlust 2016 journey I'm on - it's fabulous!!

I have also stamped some text and whimsical rose images with Archival Ink in 'Watering Can'.

Thanks for visiting - I hope you like my Art Journal page!
