Follow your Bliss... 45

Hi there! So happy it's the weekend! I've been at again ~ playing in my art journal :) ***I took the time to create a step by step tutorial that I would love for you to take a peek at so I am only going to share a few pics and words in the post.

I recently discovered this really pretty canvas on the Faber-Castel blog created by Jill Foster which led me to this AMAZING mixed media artist named, Christy Kinard. Between the two works of art, I was inspired to create my art journal page:
The roses on this page were made using the beautiful rose stamp from MFT Inspired by Flowers Set #2
 The leaves were made using Die-namics Royal Leaves.
I stamped the sentiment from MFT Inspired by Flowers Set #2 using Ranger Archival Ink on a piece of torn cardstock, prior to collaging the background.
 For color inspiration, I played along with the current colourQ Challenge:
In case you are interested in the creative process on how I made this art journal page, please be sure to take a look at my tutorial:

that tutorial was soooo helpful! I am glad to know I have some of the "right" products on their way to me. I have a question, though.....is the matte medium you used over the collage pieces, similar to Modge Podge? Love your art journal page, Mona. It's so pretty!
