Mission Inspiration

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a blast yesterday filming my mission inspiration 2016 piece for our Facebook group.

It is all about journalling and I really enjoyed making this and was totally chilled.

If you want to watch the video then please enjoy.

This was the mission statement we had to follow:

Step by Step

1st layer is tissue paper which I adhered to the page of my journal.
I then gave a light coating of white Gesso.
Stamped, flowers and butterfly with Memento ink.
I then added text from a garden magazine, adhered the collage flowers on of them over the head of the bird on the tissue paper.
Using Gelato's in red, yellow and green added colour around the page.
Using white gesso highlighted the flower and doodled little white flowers on the page.
Highlighted the bird and large flower with black pen.
Printed the phase and cut out then using black pen marked around he words.
To finish off splattered white paint over the whole page.

There you have it! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
