a great adventure 25

Hi there! Today I have an art journal page to share that was inspired by the beautiful Hibiscus flowers here on Maui :) I brought a very limited number of supplies with me including a variety of ColourArte Twinkling H20s, Prima stamps, Prima White Gesso, Prima Modeling Paste, an assortment of stencils and my art journal. I like to try my crafty hands at anything creative, so I thought this trip would be a great time to play in my art journal having fun. Please keep in mind, I don't claim to be able to paint like Monet and I find it extremely challenging to draw faces but like to try regardless.
Here's what my initial sketch looked like before bringing her to life with beautiful ColourArte Twinkling H20s Shimmering Watercolors:
My girl kind of looks sad so my goal is to try to draw the next one with a much more cheerful expression :)
I randomly stamped the butterflies then added lots of texture using Prima White Gesso along with a couple different stencils:
For the sentiment, I used a Tim Holtz sticker with a few scribbles around it :)
I'm entering this page in the following challenges: 
For color inspiration the Colour Me...! challenge 

the Mixed Media World where the challenge is to create using Stencils 
the Art it Friday ~ Show Your Face inspiration post.

Thanks so much for visiting :)
I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
