Layers of ink - Summertime Art Journal tutorial by Anna-Karin Evaldsson.

We got got back home from spending some time with my family and enjoying the the sea and various lakes. I made a summery scene in my art journal this week, working in Dina Wakley's White Journal which is 6x6 in.

When dry, I applied a little Stickles over the scales.

Stamp the main image from Simon Says Stamp Mother Earth on watercolor paper.

Smear Distress Inks on a non-stick craft sheet and watercolor the image.

Stamp a label with Simon Says Stamp Mixed Labels and Melon ink. Die cut with the coordinating die and stamp a sentiment from Dandelion Messages.

Add dots and lines with a white gel pen.

It is fun to create circle designs with the Mix and Match Circles set and various inks.

I had a left-over butterfly in just the right colors on my desk. It was made with Simon Says Stamp Graceful Butterflies and you can find the tutorial here.

I die cut the label a little skewed by mistake, but was fine with it for this fun-filled layout.

Lines and dots with a white gel pen is a fun way to add interest.
