I don't have any in-progress shots this time, but it's a fairly simple page. The blue is Dylusions Spray Ink, let to dry partially and then spread out with a sponge. I tried to do the same with the green, but I couldn't get it to work in the same way, so the green is acrylic paint, thinned with water and applied with a sponge that I had cut spiky grass shaped in, to give it a streaky look. I cut a cloud shape stencil out of cardstock and used a wet paper towel to remove the blue ink from the cloud shapes. The heart is a piece of cardstock covered with strips of book paper and colored with glimmer mist. The butterfly is a sticker. And the tower is from a stencil. I traced it on a piece of cardstock and then joined up all the bits that were separated because it's a stencil. I cut it out, mostly using a craft knife. It's painted with two different colors of gray and then lightly sprayed with some Smootch Spritz in a silver color. Once it was glued down, I gave it a bit of a shadow with a black gelato and some highlights with a white gelato and used a damp q-tip to soften and blend in the gelato. I think that's everything.
I've taken quite a few pictures to show how it really looks, but my light is horrible and it's already dark out. Maybe I'll try again in the morning. Until then, here are a few of the better photos I was able to get.
