I Paint Flowers So They Will Not Die - Art Journal Page

Hi friends :) - 'I paint flowers so they will not die' - what a great phrase!!

So let me tell you a bit about this page - this was a mixed media kit I purchased from Clarisa at Inky Fairy Designs.  The stamp set includes the sentiment and the swirly flowers designed by her for JustRite Cling stamps.  The kit came with the paints and stamp and instructions to create the page along with the option to purchase the large Dylusions Art Journal which I did :) and this is my first page in that journal.

So to start I added lots of colour with Dina Wakley media paint.  I know - it looks kind of scary right now!

After the paint, I added some random stamping with black archival ink and white media paint.  Those stamps were also designed by Clarisa and part of the kit.

Next was to add the focal point - white background for the sentiment.  I was so nervous to stamp that sentiment but since it was a new journal it was a perfect flat surface.

Lastly - added the painted flowers and used a black marker to add a checkered border for the final touch.

I have recreated a few of Clarisa's pages and she has a ton of process videos on Youtube if you'd like to see more of her work.
