Butterfly kisses - DT Project for Country View Challenges

Hello dear visitors, welcome to my blog!
It´s time for my second project for the June challenge "The written word" at Country View Challenges.
I made a little Art Journal page with a lot of butterflies and called it Butterfly kisses.

I made this page in my holidays in Italy.
And this is what I did:

For the background I took a piece of watercolor paper and spreat geneously clear water over the page. Then I painted it in several shades of blue DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics. I let the paint pool and flow and dried it with my heating tool.

When dry I started with some stamping with different background stamps with Archival Ink in different blues....

......and more stamping,

then I took a stencil from AAL&CREATE and blue fluid acrylics mixed with white Gesso and stenciled randomly.
The next stencil is one of my all time favourites. I love these flowers! I stenciled  them all over the page with white Gesso.
To make them stand out even more, I surrounded the flowers with my white posca pen.

 For my butterflies I colored another piece of watercolor paper with distress oxides. I used the wrinkle free distress technique - I spreat the Oxides onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and put the paper on top.
Then I dried the paper and repeated the process, until I was happy with the result. Then I drippled some water on top for more interest.

 Now I took my new little neon colored Amsterdam Acrylic paints. I didn´t want them to get too prominent, therefor I only dry brushed them carefully all over the page.

I stamped Finnabairs butterflies in different sizes with black archival ink and cut them out.
I adhered the butterflies with matte medium to the background paper.
next I stamped the words "butterly kisses" and three tiny hearts from the Illusionary ARTISTS stampset Perfect Words from France Papillon with Versafine Claire Nocturne on watercolor paper, cut them out and glued them down too.

Now I started to decorate the butterflies with black and white posca pens. I doodled dots and stripes, drew antennas and surrounded and shaded them. It was really meditative!

Here are all the butterflies - I love how they turned out!

That´s it for today!
I hope you will join in with our challenge, you still have some days to make something beautiful!
