Love Birds

So, today I'm going to share with you a page from my art journal:)
Fisrt, I used Modeling paste and a 2 bird stencils.
After the paste dried, I used Liquitex Acrylic Ink in Phthalocyanine Blue on the bird on the right, and colored its belly with Permanant Red Master's Touch Acrylic Paint, and it's beak with Flesh. On the bird on the left, I painted Persian Red, and the belly Sky Blue. The beak is painted Flesh. The color of the leaves is Lime Sorbet.
Above the birds, I put a little white heart from my stash:)
Next, I painted the background Ocean Green. I used a stencil and traced the clouds from a book page, and cut the out, distressed the edges with Black Soot, and modpodged them down.
I doodled on the inside and outside of the cloud using a white and black pen.

I spritzed on red spray with a "Love" stencil by Home Decor Show Offs.

And last, I glued down these Prima Flowers, which I love so much, and added a gemstone in the middle of them:)

This was a very simple page in my journal, but I really like it.
I'm sure one of these days, I'll go in and add more to it:)
