Pop-up Butterflies in your Art Journal

Hello! The technique this month is things that move. 
I have made a beautiful 2 page spread in my art journal with butterflies
 >Popping!< out as soon as I open the book!
Isn't it beautiful? 

Here's how I made this...

Other supplies used:
  • Journal Page
  • Any patterned paper
  • Distress Markers - Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn
  • Gelatos - Buttercream, Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy
  • Gesso
  • texture paste
  • Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Layered Bricked Stencil, 4.125 x 8.5
  • Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray Ink - Red Hot Poker Orange
  • Versafine Black Ink Pad
  • Ranger Glossy Accents
  • Black Pigment Marker
  • White Cardstock

Begin by stamping the butterflies on the patterned paper. 
When dry, fill in the wings with Ranger Glossy Accents. Put that aside to dry.

Scribble all over your journal page with Gelatos. Use a wet brush and some gesso to blend. 
Add some highlights with gesso and bubble wrap.

One dry, use a stencil and texture paste to add the brick pattern. Allow that to dry thoroughly before moving on.

Stamp the flowers at the base of the page and color with markers. Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock. Spray the bricks with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray Ink.

Cut ou the butterflies and color in the bodies with a black pigment marker if necessary. Fold a few strips of cardstock as below and attach to the back of the butterflies. 

Splatter the page with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Ink and allow to dry. Glue your butterflies in place.

You are now finished your journal page!

Here are some close ups of that beautiful texture.

Look how those butterflies pop off the page.
