Find Beauty in the Ordinary

Welcome, today I have a small mixed media book, decorated using my A4 Stamp Eclectic Silhouette #113 from AALLandCreate.
I began by adding some subtle stencilling to my background and then adding colour, applying Distress Oxide Bundled Sage to a piece of Acetate, spritzing with water and then pressing the ink onto my background.  I allowed the ink to dry naturally.
I opted to use the Dragonfly this time around from my A4 stamp, adding a couple of layers to the wings for added dimension.
I applied Dina Wakley Fuchsia Acrylic Paint to my stamp, adding a light layer of paint to the stamp and applying the paint with a Brayer. I then stamped the image onto my background. Remember to clean your stamp after using paints.
I added a subtle touch of Crackle Paste to the background and also incorporated a mini spanner for the body, adding further dimension to the design.
A couple of Jump Rings add further interest along with a few delicate splatters of Lime Acrylic Paint.
I used a Distress Crayon over Stencil #39 and then blended the colour with my finger to blend.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your comments and feedback. Tracy x x

I do love this book. I was surprised and delighted to see the little spanner as the butterflies body. Love what you have done.
