Art Journal - Wildflowers

I was trying a new technique when I did this art journal page. I took my acrylic stamping block and coloured on it with a watercolour crayon, then spritzed water onto it and let the crayon melt and then stamped it on the background. I did this over and over with different coloured watercolour crayons until I achieved the look I wanted. Then I stamped my images onto the background. I used the following stamp sets from Stampin Up - All a Flutter, Pocket Silhouettes, Inspired by Nature. For the quote I used Scenic Sentiments Sheet #4 from Stampscapes.
I love trying new techniqes and the art journal gives me the freedom to try many different things.
Enjoy and create everyday! :D
