31 Product Challenge - Days 9, 10, 11 & 12

Hello Everyone! Today I'm sharing a page that I built up over 4 days for the 31 Products Challenge.

Day 9 - DecoArt Crackle Paste - I prepped my page with a page from my London A-Z, and added white gesso. Then I used a palette knife to apply the crackle paste, and used a bottle top to make some circles in it.

Day 10 - Walnut Ink - I lightly spritzed the walnut ink through an alphabet stencil, added some splashes and drips, and highlighted the circles.

Day 11 - Portfolio Water-Soluble Oil Pastels - I added some colour to the circles using two shades of blue oil pastels, and blended them with a wet paintbrush.

Day 12 - Rubber Stamps - The Postie brought me a lovely PaperArtsy stamp set by Sara Naumann, so today I inked some of the stamps up and finished my page.

I linking my bumblebee page up to Linda's Creature Comforts Challenge at Art Journal Journey. I've been suffering with a horrible cough and cold the last couple of days, and managing to make a little art has really helped.

Happy Friday! Hope you're all well, have a lovely weekend.
