Playing with my paints

Today's journal page includes lots and lots of different sparkling paints.  I just dove in and played around with the different paints, just having fun trying out the various textures.  The background was created with Twinkling H20 watercolor paints, with the brighter red on the flowers were from Art Anthology Dimensional Gel Paint.  The beautifully cracked gold sparkling wings were from multiple layers of Viva Gold Crackle paint applied to chipboard.  The paint made the wings curve slightly up as well.  Finally, the green leaves around the top of the page were created by applying Silks acrylic paint directly to a rubber stamp and then stamping the leave images on the page.  The gold on the red flowers was also Silks acrylic paint that I applied with my finger :)

The lovely person die cut is from a Spellbinders die, and I added a bit of lace and black ribbon to dress her up a bit.  I used Memento ink to stamp the sentiment.  I'm not sure who makes the two stamps I used as they are buried somewhere on my desk right now and I just can't seem to motivate myself to clean it.

I am entering my journal page in the following challenges:

Thanks for coming by and checking out my little bit of whimsy on this beautiful Monday.  Hope your day is off to a fabulous start.
