Botanical Bliss


Our talented DT member Suzanne, from Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, challenges us to have the botanical theme on our project. Will you used some botanical patterns from Tim Holtz, butterflies floating around the warm spring sunshine, or flowers that just waiting to bloom? Find your botanical bliss and join us!

I was inspired by a picture of my children in the park this week and created these art journal pages.

It is the best time to play ourdoors now. Natalie and Christopher love to ride a bike, fly a kite or run in the park.

 
On these journal pages, I created the watercolor effect on the background using Izink inks and Gelatos.

 
I randomly added some Tim Holtz Life Quotes Rub Ons on the background and on the Prima Flowers wood embellishments.
 


There are Simon Says Stamp Berkshire Leaf Borders around the beautiful Prima Flowers.


Children always love to chase butterflies so I stamped lots of butterflies on these pages using Hero Arts Stamp Butterfly and Colorbox Paintbox Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Happy crafting!

  19. This is such a fantastic journal page! I love how you did that dreamy background and how you had both abstract/modern botanical elements as well as realistic-looking dimensional flowers. What a great a tribute to your kids, too! It's always a joy to see your sources of inspiration and the wonderful projects you create!
