Life is Sweet Art Journaling Pages with Napkins

Life is Sweet Art Journal Pages....what's sweeter than mixed media creating with lemons! 
So, grab your Arteza 8 x 8 Watercolor SketchBook and let's begin! 

Add washi tape randomly to your pages. 
*HINT: If you don't have washi tape; use pieces of torn paper strips. 
Make sure to add several pieces to the bind of the pages. 
This will help the pages from becoming weak from water. 

Add torn pieces of pages from an old book by applying Clear Matte Gel to page and over top of pieces of paper. 

Add pieces of napkins from Eileen Hull's Etsy Shop Lemon Napkins to pages by apply Clear Matte Gel to pages and then carefully over napkins using a paintbrush. 
Add small journal tag. 

Repeat with butterflies and flowers from a second napkin in the Lemon Napkins.

Stamp doily from Stampers Anonymous Doily Stamp Set randomly on pages using blue ink. 

Mist pages apply yellow watercolor paint to pages; dry. 
Repeat with blue purple watercolor. Make sure to mist pages to move paint on pages and dry in between applications. 

Lay The Crafters Workshop Harlequin Stencil on dry pages; apply crackle paste with palette knife. Dry
Repeat randomly on both pages. 

Add sticker pieces to pages. 

Apply white gesso dots to page using toothpick. 

Add rub-ons randomly to pages. 

Add black graphitint around images so they stand out. 

Hope you enjoy creating with napkins!
