Happy 2017 !

Hi everyone, it's my turn up on the blog for Art Anthology and I'm here to share with you an art journal page I created. Now I don't do New Years resolutions because I can't ever keep them, so I always try to choose a word that will motivate me to be a better "me" for that year. This year I chose "CONFIDENCE", I tend to be a perfectionist and that sometimes allow my failures to hinder my dreams. So I'm focused on trusting my abilities knowing full well that I'm a work in progress and only through trials and errors do we grow and excel in all aspects of a human being.
Using some yummy texture with modeling paste provided my foundation. I decided to go with a cool color palette and created my main focal butterfly as a 3D layered piece. 
With the use of acrylic sheets I stamped my floral images and adhered with Glossy accents to the page. 
To add more bling I used Metal Effects paint in Gold along with German Glass Glitters in coordinating colors through the page. For a full list of Art Anthology products used please visit Art Anthology's blog here. 
Wishing you a year filled with "Confidence", try something new, think out of your box to expand your horizons, and above all, embrace your imperfections. For your pleasure sit back and enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below. xoxo Toni
