"Trust the Magic" Dylusions Art Journal ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello! I'm back with an art journal page that I had a blast making, using stamps and Ranger Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Paints from FotoBella.com!

     I started with the sky background, made from Dylusions Paints, (Crushed Grape, After Midnight, London Blue, Squeezed Orange, and Funky Fuchsia) and a little water, applied with my fingers. Then I used an old tree stamp along the sides, stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Besides the gold crackle, the same ink was used for the rest of the stamping, but embossed with Ranger's Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder. The gold crackle was stamped with an old Tim Holtz stamp, and embossed with Ranger Gold Tinsel. 

     The main image and hearts were embossed with the Prima Marketing Finnabair Trust the Magic Stamp Set, which inspired this page. 

     Then I embossed the butterflies with the Prima Marketing Finnabair Rust & Dust Stamp Set. I used a paintbrush with watered down White Linen Dylusions Paint to paint bubbles on the background, and adhered the sequins with Glossy Accents

     Finally, I added some buttons, covered with Prima Marketing Black Gesso, and sprinkled with beads. Once dry, I went over them again with Dylusions Paints, and finished them off with Prima Marketing Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold).

     Thanks for looking, and get these supplies and more at FotoBella.com
