mini art jounal layout Raksha Bandan

Here's page 6 of my mini art journal layout based on Raksha Bandan celebs...

   Started with Distress inks (mustard seed, wild honey, spiced marmalade) & did some water splotches to achieve more texture & also used quite a few layering stenclis to build more interest on the bg..

I started off by drawing a flower & cutting it out of an orange foam sheet.. Layered with yellow circle  & a shwastik..
Added some say it in crystals pearl.. I added 3D glitter gold around the petals but unfortunately the gold didn't quite show up & looked mostly like a clear glue..
I cut some gold confetti lying around in my home & added at the back & embroidery twine made into a braided rope..

I drew the diyas with gold alcohol marker & colored with distress inks..
Wrote the sentiment with Staedtler fine liner & uniball signo white gel pen..

Added some gold & copper sequins to finish off my layout :)
