The Cutest 'Paper Bag' Art Journal Mini Album @ STAMPlorations

{My DT work for STAMPlorations}

Hi there friends! Today I have a mini project I am making for my grand nephew who turns 1 recently. It's going to be a mini art journal photo album made from brown paper bag and this is one of the probably ten pages to fill up the mini album. I shall be sharing other pages from time to time as I blog and at the same time waiting for more photos from his grandma {my middle sister}.
I used two different stencils from Stamplorations to create the textural background after applying two coats of gesso. Firstly I used Peonies All Over stencil and after it is dried I used Dots All Over stencil.
 I punched some Kaisercraft patterned papers and adhered randomly on the page.
 Cute sentiment for a young boy eh? {chuckle}
 I stamped the butterfly from Trendy Butterflies stamp directly on the circle and used white gel pen to make some dots on the left wings for interest.
 After all the texture and watercolors are dried, the paper bag becomes super heavy and somewhat sturdy. That pleased me all right because I was quite afraid in the first place if this project will ever get torn in the long run. Later when all the ten pages are completed, I shall add tags in every pocket and go with the flow. 
I hope you like my project for today. My fellow teammies have also created their gorgeous projects at STAMPlorations blog today. Click here to have a see.
