Love is the Flower You've got to let Grow!

Hello Everyone, it's Sue Lelli here with a post that's all about playing in my Dylusions art journal with some new stencils, paints, and embossing pastes. Since I was concentrating on flowers, I found this FAB quote on my computer:
It was just so Perfect for my journal pages:
 I used bright Dylusions Ink Sprays for my BG colors on top of Tim Holtz Terminology tissue wrap and left the words showing though. Then I let the FUN begin!
Close up of left page:
The flowers were added using Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste with my Wendy Vecchi 3 Fresh Flowers Stencil. The black stencil marks were made using Wendy Vecchi's black embossing paste and the TCW Mini Textured Stencil. I painted the flowers with Silks Acryllic Glaze in Boysenberry and Raspberry wine.
 
Close up of the right page:
Same process except some additional steps. The daisies were painted with titanium white Golden Paint. I outlined the daisies with a Stabilo all pencil in black.  Circles were made with the Raspberry Wine Silks Acrylic Glaze using two tops from bottles. Then I added dots in Blizzard and Peony using Art Anthology Dimensional Crystals. Also if you look closely you will see the white heart I added with the TCW Confetti Stencil. I LOVE this stencil so much I use it on practically Everything!
 
In this close up you can see the FAB texture on the flower outlined with the black pencil and the dimensional dots in the center.

I added this date stamp. This helps me keep a record of when I made something so I can follow my artistic development as I try new things. Silly maybe, but I like it!
Some process photos:
Tissue wrap with embossing paste flowers. Can you see them?

Dylusion Sprays

Here I started painting the flowers (after the paste and ink were completely dry).
And in case you forgot ~ my finished pages:
I hope you like them! I really had FUN!
