So after seeing many, many other beautiful journals out there in blog land as part of this wonderful group I decided to take the plunge and join in this year.
So I got myself the recommended large Dylusions journal (bit dauting as it was much bigger than I expected!) and made a start. So each month there is a theme and within that month there are weekly journalling prompts which you can interupt as you wish - for more info see HERE
So here is my completed first page:
To start I covered one page with Bo Bunny newsprint paper:
I added a very light base coat of gesso before adding some Paperartsy Fresco paints in Cherry Red, Limelight, Zesty Zing and Beach Hut with touches of white gesso here and there over the top.
I smudged some Little Black Dress Fresco paint around the edges of the page and did some stamping with it using some Inkylicious stamps. I used the Little Black Dress paint to colour a tag, stamped the Paperartsy Ellen Vargo (EEV10) flower in Versamark before embossing with white powder and colouring using Very Berry, Sky and Hyde Park Fresco paints.
I added some doodling down one side of the tag with a white Sharpie pen and smudged Snowflake Fresco paint around the edges before adding the black sparkly letters.
I added the tag to the page using Tim Holtz washi tape so it acted as a flap. I have added my goals for the year underneath using a white Sharpie pen. I added more of the washi tape to the page then stamped out the quote by Roald Dahl, inked the edges with Black Soot DI and added to the page.
So that's my very first DLP journal page completed.
I'm really hoping I can keep up as much as possible with this challenge for 2015 but only time will tell!
Thanks for looking, Claire xx
