Without further ado, here is my project for the month. Yes, another art journal page. I can't help it, I love making them.

I started off spraying the pages with the new pink color of Dylusions sprays. Then I adhered paper from the Secret Admirer collection and sprayed over everything with the white Dylusions spray. I used several pieces from the April Mixed Media kit including the stencil, cloud rub-ons, gesso, and the eiffel tower clip art.

I stamped all over the background with stamps from Art Textures, Flower Power, Royal Melange (included in the April Mixed Media Kit), and Scallop Border stamp sets.

The final touch was a white pencil. I used my white pencil all over this spread. The tip was a nub when I was finished.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thanks for completing the hop with us!

Make sure to head back to the Paper Wings Productions Blog and let them know you completed the hop!
