Be Bold, Be Bright, Be Beautiful. Art journal page

Another art journal challenge!!!
This time I was the one that picked the theme...can you guess what it was?
I wanted to play with some bright bold colours :)
I think I achieved my goal ;)

First off I used some Dylusions paint to colour my background.
I love the bold bright colours these paints have...odd that I haven't used them that much.
I honestly did not like the background when I first started out.
After adding the colours, I then used a few different stencils to add some texture to the background.

I used these same Dylusions paints, but in different colours for the butterflies.
I just added the colour on some white cardstock, stamped the images and then fussy cut them out.
This one is my favourite...It is a Tim Holtz butterfly stamp (Thank you Lesli for lending it to meπŸ’— )

This stamp is from Inkadinkado.

I also added some rub-ons to the background before adhering the butterflies.

I used these letter stickers Sharon gave me that she picked up from a discount store...they were for signs, but I have used them on so many projects!!
The sparkly "beautiful" came from a sticker pack.

I also did a process video on how I created this page :)
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel, just click on the link "Tracy's Treasures 24"

I am posting this challenge on my Facebook Group Tracy's Treasures Shares.
It doesn't have to be an art journal page, it could be a card, scrapbook page, knitting, quilting...what ever your medium of choice is.
I would love if you joined us there...I would love to see what you create.

I hope you all have a very creative day
