Flutter & Fly {Art Journal} @ MHKDesigns

{My DT work for MHKDesigns}

Hi all! Wishing all of you the best of health and happiness in your every day life adventure. I'm doing pretty okay with my plans so far especially the on-going sewing of baju kurung, kaftan, pillow sheets, and drapes. I just looked through a book on how to sew children's attire which fascinates me to give it a try. The step by step pictorial tutorial looks like easy although my understanding is blurry somewhere, hehe. I will make time to find good You Tube videos and study on how to sew a children's dress. My model will be my youngest girl. She is pretty excited about it. If anyone can recommend me a good video, I will appreciate it so much. 

Enough blab. Today let me walk you into second release of the month from MHKDesigns and this time is all about butterflies namely Flutter & Fly available at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop.

I have used all the three butterflies images and one sentiment in the stamp set to create a vintage looking art journal that uses mixture of watercolor paints and coffee altogether. 
Isn't the images and sentiments look gorgeous in this week's release?
A few close-up:
 I created the background by applying texture paste through a square links stencil after giving the pages with a coat of homemade clear gesso for easy flow of watercolor paints mixed with black coffee. I only used two shades of red and blue watercolors for this project that is layered with plenty of colors one after another until I feel satisfied. The black coffee simply darken up the colors creating earth tones especially brown here and there.  
 All I did was just playing with the colors and coffee; let them mix, flow and absorb. I let it air dry for a while before I doodle the butterflies antenna. Also highlight the edges of these creatures with light gesso.
That's about it for today. I am so glad you visit me today, thank you.
I look forward to see your creations using MHKDesigns and why not link it up at MHKDesigns blog challenge this month for a chance to win vintage images.

See you tomorrow with intuitive mixed media art journal.
Have a good weekend.

Hugs and smiles,
