Hi there! Today I have a couple of pages to share in my art journal featuring a wide variety of products including an assortment of ColourArte Twinkling H20s (watercolor paints).
Here's a closer look at page 1:
To create all the floral texture on the background, I combined texture paste with Lemondrop ColourArte Primary Elements and Prima White Gesso then randomly applied to the background along with a Prima stencil:
I stamped the beautiful butterfly image from the Prima Don't Forget To Fly set, colored with ColourArte Mediterranean blue Twinkling H20s then topped off with a pretty flower which I custom colored using ColourArte Pink Grapefruit Twinkling H20sFor a little extra interest, I adhered glitter and glass micro beads to the center of each blossom:
Here's a closer look at page 2:
For the focal point, I layered a pretty vintage image from Pion Design on coordinating papers which I watercolored using  ColourArte Mediterranean blue and Pink Grapefruit Twinkling H20s:
The title is a Tim Holtz sticker:
I joined along with the following challenges:
The Craft Stamper: Take It Make It Challenge: July which is "Take A Stamp" Anything Goes, For color inspiration ~ The Scrap Around The World July mood board:
For sketch inspiration, the Let's Get Sketchy July Week 2 challenge:
