Everything is possible - art journal page

Hi, crafty friends! I am back today with another art journal page. I used several TCW stencils with Archival inks and My Favorite Things one (cogs and gears) with my Liquitex Light modeling paste. A lot of spraying with my Distress stain sprays, Perfect pearl mists and glimmer mists has been used there. Cogs and gears are Xcut dies treated with some Galleria sand paste and several acrylics paints. The focal image is Paper whimsy digital image and I stamped two images (a hot air balloon and a sun) with black Archival ink on a manila cardstock. The wings are part of a butterfly (Tim Holtz's butterfly duo die) which has been sprayed with Distress stain sprays and Perfect pearl mists and distressed with Vintage photo DI. I used Idealogy small chit chat stickers for the quote.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment!

I am sharing this page at Bumblebees And Butterflies A Visual Journey #25
