Hi everyone!  Please don't faint because I am posting twice in one week and not once in a year.  LOL.  The art journal page posted was done using the exclusive May stencils from StencilGirl. Love my StencilGirl stencils!

I did not gesso my pages first, I forgot to do it and I usually do.  I guess I was in a hurry to create. I used a dry brush and applied Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics in light blue, cobalt blue, and lime green, then blended the colors with a wet baby wipe. I drew through the stencils of the bird/limb and bee. The flowers I stenciled on in white acrylic. I really liked the flowers white but then decided they needed color.  I stamped spots on the background with a stamp from SU (the set is called Gorgeous Grunge). I used StazOn in Teal Blue and Forest Green. For the flowers/stems/leaves I used Silks Acrylic Glazes in Olive Vine, Jasmine and Sunflower. I stenciled the bird again and fussy cut it out and colored the bird  with NeoColor II watercolor crayons, and attached it over the original stenciled bird using glue dots to lift it off the page a little. The branch and leaves, and bee  were done with Pitt Artist Pens. I then applied glitter to the bird by mixing glazing medium with glitter and painting it on.  I then added the words and finally used Gelatos to add a border to the page.

Please leave a comment if you visit, good or bad, I can take it!
