Gratitude ~ Art Journaling

New Beginnings

I've started a new adventure with Art Journaling 
We are into our first week and we were given the word "Gratitude"

First I had to find my Smash Art Journal that I stashed, then I started off looking for my Gelli Plate that I purchased many moons ago (never used till now) LOL hours later I got started out with some Lumiere paints, new stencil, roller in hand I covered my plate with paint.
After drying my paint I added a butterfly stencil and sponged paint over it and outline with sharpie 
Lastly stamped off a Terriy Medaris Native Goddess (retired) and colored the image with Copic Markers

Thank you for having look!
