Acrylic Paints blended background and collage journal panel

For this panel I took quinacridone violet, cobalt teal hue and transparent yellow oxide which are all DecoArt Media transparent colours and translucent white which is semi transparent and blended them over a textured gesso background blending with a blending tool and blending foam and rubbing back with dry kitchen paper. When I was happy with the pale colours I then sanded lightly over the surface to reveal some of the white of the gesso below. Using ground espresso distress ink I blended around the edges of the card to give it a more vintage appeal and rubbed a little in the centre too wiping it back with a damp cloth.

Stamp text stamps using watering can archival ink before splattering with a watery wash of paynes grey. Add a collage with wildflower stems and some dried natural accents, ..........

...... a transparent butterfly coated with matte medium to take the shine off of it, .........

......... vintage photo and quote.
