This art journal page is a little different because there is only partial background and some of the page is blank. It enhances the flow of the page and the feeling that the butterflies are actually flying. I used a stencil and modeling paste to create the butterflies.
I added color sprays and used a water brush to spread it. I created borders for the butterflies with aquarelle pencils and artist's pen big brushes. Then I added dots and splatters for more texture and pattern. I wrote the sentence between the butterflies.
It's always fun and challenging to try something new and for me, who always cover the page with lots of paint and patterns, leaving some areas blank was not easy. But that's what art journaling is all about...trying new things, stretching the limits, going out of your comfort zone and finding new ways to express yourself!
