Art Journal Page with Hunkydory Dots to Diamonds!

Hello Topflight Stamps Fans, happy Mix Media Monday with an art journal page using Hunkydory Dots to Diamonds products. I have never played with them before so it was fun to turn this into a mix media art journal page. Remember if you use my code KARENBEARSE you will save 12% off your order- *check info on the shop site for exclusions.

I decided to go with a whimsical look. The Dots to Diamond paper pad has 12 designs with 4 sheets each. These sheets tear out so you can just glue this page into one of your art journals when the page is finished, or make a card.The paper did retain it's shape it just needs to be flattened or glued to a page.

I was sent a papercraft pad & tons of fun bling! You can see all the links below in the supply list & if you order through my link just add in the coupon code karenbearse & you will receive 12% off your order!!! 

Let's get started!! I chose to play with a butterfly design. The dots on the paper show where placement goes for the bling so it was necessary to use something translucent on the page. Watercolor paint was the perfect solution & the 250gsm paper actually held up really well. 1st an image was stamped with archival ink so it would not bleed. I chose a cute owl.  

A wee spritz of water first then adding fairly wet water color paint randomly to create a messy background. Avoid painting the stamped image so it can be colored later. 

Time to add the bling!! You will want the paper to be really dry before you do this so the self-adhesive bling will stick. The bling is called Diamond Sparkles & comes in both pearl & gemstone in a huge range of colors. If you pull the Sparkles out of the package you can see how the different size gemstones line up for placement. 

I choose to use Beautiful Blues for the body & Vintage Browns Pearlescent for the wings. Simply peel the gem off the backing & stick. 

You can also use a tool to make it easier. 

All that was left was to jazz up my page with some doodling, background stamping, a quote & coloring the cute owl. I hope you try out this fun Hunkydory Dots to Diamond product!
