Happy Time, bright sunny colours!

I made this spread in my large Dylusions journal with lots of texture and happy sunny colours. I started - after gessoing my page - by gluing down some papers from an old encyclopedia. Then I glued down strips of open ribbon over that with gel medium. I put it close together so there are hardly any seams visible. After that I put down some texture paste to create even more texture. Then I mixed several colours of paint with glazing medium and painted over the page. After letting it dry for a minute or so I wiped some of it away with a babywipe, thus revealing the texture of the paste even more.
The butterflies are from a paper napkin; I glued them down on thick paper with gel medium and cut them out. Glueing them down I left the wings free so they would stand up a little. The stems of my butterfly flowers were made with thick bakers twine which was white and dark green. I used a green Dylusion spray to make it entirely green. Over de stems I glued some washi tape.
I diluted some darkbrown acrylic paint with water and with a brush I flecked some splatters over my page, making sure the butterflies stayed 'clean'. On the edges of my pages I added Chocolate Gelato and I wrote down the quote with a brown Sharpie pen. I hope you all like my spread. Happy hump day!!!
