Hello, my lovely crafty friends! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and welcome back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "TRIO OF SOMETHING". As this is the first challenge of the month, we are showcasing Dyan Reaveley's products. You don’t have to use her products to join in, but if you have something then we would love to see them used.

Our guest designer is Paula Roomer aka PaNaRoo. Be sure to check her blog and all her beautiful creations! 

Trio

I was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page using Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray Dyan Reaveley for the background, and decorated it with three butterflies from Idea-Ology Botanical Layers Paperie.

To start this project, I drew a pencil sketch on my watercolor sketchbook then drew the girl with Copic Multiliner ink pen. I used Mijello multi purpose palette to mix Dylusions paints and water to color the girl with a brush pen. The image was cut and pasted on my art journal using Scot-Tap double side tape.

I cut a piece of paper to cover the girl, and sprayed Dyan Revealey Dylusions sprays over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil around the girl.

Three butterflies from Tim Holtz Botanical Paperie were pasted on the journal using Tomobw Mono Glue. I added the Idea-Ology Foundry embellishment as her earring.

Some more flower embellishments were added and sentiment stickers were attached. I stamped some random text on the page. The edges of the art journal page were distressed using ink pad and Art Dauber.

I really enjoy using these vibrant colors of acrylic paints and sprays from Dyan Revealey collection on my art journal page. I hope this inspired you to try them on your project. Join us and have fun!
