Irisdescents Make Me Smile

Yes...it's true! I love iridescent paints! I love these beauties from Ann Butler Designs and Earth Safe Finishes!

Today's project is a pretty little passport journal. Even though we have had a minimal winter here, I am ready for spring and all colours that say spring! Lilac and lime, yum!

Finished product

I started with the Eileen Hull Passport Journal and Ann Butler Designs Iridescent Lilac. I only used one coat, but if you want a deeper colour you could use two coats.

Once the Lilac paint was dry, I very lightly sponged on the Iridescent Silver for a bit more interest.

I used Ann's Stencil Girl stencil L643, it is one of my faves. I love that it has a matching corner stencil on the same sheet. Added a bit of Ranger Gel Medium for this step.

After the medium dried I sponged over it with Ann Butler Crafter's Ink in Limelight. I liked the look but I wanted the green to be a bit more prominent. So I mixed the Crafter's Ink with Ranger Texture and put it through the stencil again!

Love how the Crafter's Ink and texture paste turned out!

The top design is in Archival Black using the matching corner stencil. I made three little inserts for the journal with watercolour paper.  

Make sure to follow Ann Butler Designs to see the fabulous creations from the design team created from all of Ann's amazing lines!

Have a great week everyone and thank you for stopping by!
