Mixed media journal page - tulips




Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend.......quite a bit of sunshine here so can't complain! Showing another page from my mixed media journal today and the technique I followed along with was to create the flowers from parchment painted with acrylics. I didn't have parchment and used vellum instead but as it's quite a bit thicker than parchment the effect isn't quite as crinkly. I stamped some tissue with Paper Artsy stamps from the ding dong collection which I used for the vases and then the tissue was painted with washes of acrylic. There's doodling and stamping with an Artistic stamper polka dot background stamp for texture as well. 

Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're always read and appreciated.
