AALL&Create - Time Flies

Hi folks, it's hard to believe we are almost at the end of February already and the weather in my neck of the woods has turned positively spring-like, the sun is shining and the bulbs have started to poke their heads above ground which inspired me to create an Art Journal Page in my Dina Wakley Media Journal for this week's AALL&Create project using the Time Flies #143 stamp set designed by Tracy Evans and Stencils Circle Of Life #47 designed by Olga Heldwein and probably my favourite AALL&Create Stencil - Lotza Dotz #39 designed by Autour DeMwa

It was also an excuse to try out the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays from Ranger. I sprayed Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Spray on to the pages, followed by flicks of Peeled Paint, spritzed with water to create the oxidised effect and dried with a heat tool.
I spritzed Peeled Paint through the Circle Of Life Stencil #47, turned the stencil over and pressed on the pages to create a monoprint effect.
 I inked sections of Time Flies #143 with Versafine Onyx Black and stamped randomly on the pages

I stamped the sentiment several times and images from the stamp set on to Distress Plain Collage Paper. I used a paintbrush and clean water to trace around the images, teased them apart with my finger and added to the pages using Distress Collage Medium Matte.
 I applied Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste through Stencil #39 Lotza Dotz
and added white highlights to the butterfly and circles with a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. I finished off by flicking splatters of Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Spray and White Gesso over the pages.
