Art Journal Page - Gel Print BG Butterflies

Hello Everyone! I have a very colorful project to share today. This is a journal page I've created using a gel printed background and then pimped using different techniques to add more depth and dimension. This was part of my Art Journal class at the Whimsy Retreat back in May.
My gel print pages are inspired by Kate Crane. I love her style and love to watch her mixed media and gel print videos. 


As you can see I used lots of different Whimsy products on this journal page. I have my gel printed background as a base and then I start adding texture with different stamps and stencils. I tend to use white first if the background is very colorful like this one to break it up a bit. I also use ink in the same colors I used already for my background to stamp. To make it even more pop I added black stamped numbers, circles and stripes. Finally I do some detailing using black and white pens.


To add a focal point I've added butterflies and part of a die cut background die. These elements where die cut from left over gel print pieces.


 Sentiments where stamped onto white cardstock to make them stand out more.


Here is a list of all Whimsy products used:
