Baby Nursery Layout with Bo Bunny Willow and Sage Collection

New beginnings including many baby nursery's that are being designed!
I am sharing a mix media baby nursery layout using BoBunny Willow and Sage Collection; I hope you enjoy.
Begin your layout using a piece of white cardstock. 
Apply White Gesso on top; this helps move the watercolors around on the page. 
(HINT: Tape the white paper to table using washi tape; this will help it from warping. I also use Super Stock Paper from Creative Scrapbooking.)

Apply Prima Confections Watercolor paints to prepared paper; dry. 

Fussy cut floral images from BoBunny Willow and Sage Collection.
Add to layout with pop dots and adhesive. 

Paper punch border strips; add them to your layout in different lengths using Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker. 

Add a few more of the border strips along with an Ephemera piece to the layout. 

Apply nursery photos on distress color card stock and tissue paper. 
Add to prepared layout using Xyron Mega Runner. 

Die cut two sets of alphabet letters from pattern paper; layer together using Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker to create a shade affect. 
Add to prepared letters to layout. 

Spatter with Prima Confections Watercolor paints. 
Apply rub ons to prepared layout. 

Add a few more ephemera pieces and rub-ons to layout!

Finish by applying rub ons from the 49 & Marketplace Strawberry Lemonade Collection randomly on layout. 
Enjoy creating mixed media layouts!

Dance in the Rain Mix Media Art Journal Pages

Dancing in the Rain!!!
I had so much fun creating this mixed media journal page!
It brought fabulous memories of a bike ride I took a few years ago with my husband with our friends!

It was a beautiful day but then it started to rain and got chilly from the wind, fun times!
It wouldn't have been long, but we were about 4 or so miles into the ride, lol.
I began my art journal pages by spraying my pages and allowing them to dry completely. 
 Stamp the sentiment, bike and borders from Stampers Anonymous with Black Ink. 
Draw circle using my Spinning Circle Stencil and doodle around them with pen. 

Apply watery distress inks over bits and pieces of the stamped images. 

Stamp images using distress inks from various stamp sets.
(I have added the ones I used along with links in the supply list.)

Stamp a few butterflies with black ink. 

Lay my Swirly Filigree Stencil on the prepared pages; apply paste to top. Dry

I plan on placing a few photos on the top page to memorialize the day along with journaling to finish. 

I hope you have enjoyed the process and enjoy creating special times in your art journals. 
Make sure to add your own journaling and photos.

Spring is in Bloom Tag with Gel Press

May is in full bloom which means so is Springtime! 
Hydrangeas are blooming, dragonflies are flying, and everything is coming alive! 

Speaking of blooming... 
When you create with the Gel Press it reminds me that creating is watching a project bloom. 
Every time I apply different mediums and textures to the Gel Press and do a pull with paper, I am always so surprised at the creation that has been created. 
***This paper pull was created with using 3 Americana paints; brush on randomly
using the Gel Press and Brayer. 

Die cut a tag from the prepared paper. 
Lay stencil on top; apply crackle paste. Dry

Add border element to top of tag. 

Apply some rub-ons on here and there on prepared tag.
Add bow to tag.
