My Other Creations: Notebook Cover using Darkroom Door's Small Wildflowers Stencil

"Something New" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and we're also featuring products from Darkroom Door.  I decided to make a mini-notebook cover celebrating new growth.

I started with a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper that I stamped on.  I also did some dot-stenciling with white paint.

Next I got out my Dylusions spray inks, unscrewed the lids and drizzle-dripped a little bit of color onto the page.  Then I used a water brush to spread the color around.

While my paper was drying, I used a Darkroom Door stencil to trace two flowers.  I fussy-cut them out and then covered them with collaged paper scraps I had from previous projects.  I also added more stamping to the bottom of the cover.

I added some white acrylic paint back in to tone things down and added colored acrylic paint to the edges of the cover.  I also scribbled and smudged with a black oil pastel at the bottom.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
