Dragonfly Mini Art Journal Page


Hello Blank Page Muse Fans!  Today, I thought I would share a mini art journal page that was recently added to my Bullet Journal.  This is a 8.2" X 5.5" format size, so the design could be used on an over-sized card as well, or expanded into a full sized 8.5 X 11 page with room to add more stamped dragonflies.


Supplies:
8.2" X 5.5" notebook page
Dragonfly Stamp
Flower border
Happiness Blooms from Within Sentiment Stamp
United Rings Stamp from Hearty Doodles set
Black Pigment Ink
White Pigment Ink
Clear embossing Powder
Distress Crayons [Gelatos or similar water based ink can work, in this case Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers by Tim Holtz Distress Oxides were used]
Brush [A watercolor brush with it's own reservoir was used in this case]
Water

Instructions:
1. Scribble a mid-range green Distress Crayon across the top of your blank page filling in half of the page.  Taking your blue, scribble from the bottom to the middle of the page. Overlap a bit in the center. 


2. Using your brush and some water, brush across the page, blending the crayons and diluting the colors.  Pull edge to edge, drawing out the color to the paper borders.  It should look like a light wash of color framing the heavier colored center. Once  it's all blended out, allow to dry.


3. Once dry, stamp out corner (upper left) to opposite corner (bottom right) in black pigment ink the flower border and emboss.


4. Stamp Sentiment with black pigment ink centered on page, then embossed.


5. Stamp the dragonfly on the left side, near the text and the flowered border stamp. Emboss with the clear powder.


6. Inking up with white pigment ink, stamp the Linked-Circle stamp a bit randomly, filling in some of the negative space and open areas.  Emboss using the clear embossing powder.


I found this page was super easy and an inspirational way to enjoy the beginning of the summer months.
