Hi everyone! It’s Sharon and I’m here today sharing a mixed media art journal project that I made using three different CoreStacks. As I have said before but cannot say enough, I love how all of these stacks go together beautifully! As you know, we have new releases by Lisa Oxley and I think they are absolutely amazing! I could not wait to get started using both of her new stacks: Lisa Oxley Bright & Bold and Lisa Oxley Floral Fetish. I also sprinkled in some butterflies from the Anemones & Friends CoreStack.
I chose my art journal with watercolor pages, then painted both pages with Gesso. After they dried, I created my background with watercolors and stamping. Next, I adhered the green and blue rainbow strips from the Floral Fetish stack to my page to create a scene with grass and sky. I fussy cut and adhered the flowers and rainbow from this same stack. I also die cut the clouds from a page in the Bright & Bold stack and placed them on on my page. I machine stitched the clouds and rainbow to my page with white thread.(It’s subtle!) Next, I adhered the butterflies from the Anemones & Friends stack because I just couldn’t resist using these beauties!
And finally, I finished by adding a sun, some more stamping, and my own quote. And that’s it! Easy peasy!!! And what fun it was to use Lisa’s new stacks.
Here are direct links to the stacks I used:
