Water Bugs and Dragonflies

I was recently introduced to this story and was moved to create an art journal page.

I started out by writing the story out using Collage Pauge and a fine tip liner pen.

After this was dry I went over it with Dylusions Spray inks. I applied the spray inks and then wiped the page down with a few baby wiped to blend the colors.

Next I stamped in the dragonfly image with a Tim Holtz stamp and black Archival ink. I then colored the dragonfly images with Distress Stain and a water brush. I added in some shading with a blue paint pen.

For a bit more added interest I splatted some black and white paint onto the page.

Lastly I added in a title with a black pen and shaded around it with the blue paint pen.

I am going to submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Anything goes Challenge. As always thanks for stopping by and be sure to look out for those dragonflies this Spring.
