Star Spangled Happiness!!

Happy Wednesday and happy 4th of July eve to all of my friends in the USA!! I hope you have fun plans for tomorrow...cookouts, maybe a party, fireworks :)


I have a Patriotic page to share from my journal. The page was spritzed with water and then Dylusions Sprays in Cherry Pie, Postbox Red, London Blue and Calypso Teal. Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Paint was lightly flicked over the surface. A Dylusions Starry Starry Night stencil was placed on the page and sprayed with water for a ghosting effect. Some of the stars were colored in with Cherry Pie, London Blue and a white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. They were outlined with a white the Gelly Roll Pen and then with charcoal. A Tim Holtz splatter stamp from the Spooky Stuff set was stamped in Picket Fence Distress Paint for the effect of fireworks. They were then covered with Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles for sparkle. The circles around the border were created with a Wendy Vecchi Dots & Stripes Border stencil, as were the stripes along the bottom. They were created with Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.


Julie Nutting's Prima Doll Stamp - Mia - was stamped on book paper. Her top, headband and shoes were created with a Wendy Vecchi stripes stamp from the It's More Flower Art set and Dylusions spray in Calypso Teal. Her skirt was made with a Crafter's Workshop Punchinella stencil and Dylusions spray in Postbox Red. Mia was then outlined with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen and charcoal.


The sentiments are all from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set. I couldn't decide which sentiment to use, so I used them all :) They were stamped on watercolor paper and spritzed with Dylusions sprays. They were then outlined with the white pen and charcoal.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

My sweetest friend, I apologize for the delay, but it was a busy and festive few days! I'm so happy to be here at last to leave you some love. :o) This art journal page is absolutely gorgeous! It's hard to pick a favorite component, as each one is so beautifully patriotic. :o) The background is so striking... I love those colors, especially together as you've created them. (And I love that one is Cherry Pie! So perfect for a 4th of July celebration!) Mia's outfit is perfect for the occasion, too. This is stunning, my talented friend! Amazing work, as always. :o) I hope you had a wonderful 4th! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
