Hello everyone, I am sharing my mixed media journal page today for which I've used the Chocolate Baroque Spring bird Tulip stamp set.
To create the background, first I adhered different washi tapes onto the page.

Next I spritzed blue and green inks randomlly on the surface, I used more water to spread the colour on the surface. Dried it with a heat tool.
For extra texture I applied coloured Gel medium through a stencil.
My focal point are these wonderful tulips, which I stamped in black Archival Ink. I've also stamped cute dragonflies from the Just Butterflies stamp set.

I hope you liked my journal page. Thanks so much for stopping by, Shilpa.
