7 backgrounds in 7 days - day 7

Final layers today.

Added silver and blue glitter glue to the circles, I’m glad I found 6 more layers for this one that fits in perfectly with the metallic look of the first layer.

Sprayed the bricks with postbox red Dylusions sprayink (I am definitely going to add some shading to those bricks, layer 8 J)

Added a rose stamp all over, it’s not good visible, but it’s there

Added a script stamp

With this one I cheated a bit, I wanted to add shading to the birds but wasn’t happy how this turned out and added something else, some green washi tape with stars.

Outlined the design of the stencil I sprayed in layer 3

I already liked the butterflies so much I just added some written text around the border inspired by the wall of words stencil from Carolyne Dube: enchant, delight and fascinate.

There is a follow up on this challenge, 3 journal pages in 7 days. I thought we were going to use these backgrounds as a start and turn them into proper journaling pages, but we start afresh. So I will have to make my own challenge with these backgrounds, will keep you posted on the progress.
