Color your world - art journal pages

Hi, friends! We have a beautiful spring here in Croatia which inspired me to make these art journal pages. For the background, I applied Dylusions paints with the baby wipes. Then I used Dylusion ink through the stencil. I cut the border on four pages using my new Dylusions block which helps me to trace the shape. I treated those four pages in the same way as my background and then glued them together. I didn't want them to look as one page so I applied the glue only on a few spots. That's way they look like separate pages. I used stamping and doodling through the stencil on the borders. The flowers and the bird were stamped on a manila cardstock and colored with my gelatos (watercoloring technique), cut out and glued down. I used Gelatos to color the leaves, as well. To add some more interest I used my white gel pen to doodle through the stencil. I like how this turned out :)

I am sharing this at fabulous Brenda Brown's Visual Journey #17
