I had a play in my new Strathmore journal which I got as part of my workshop with Birgit Koopsen - the background had been created as part of the class using Liquitex inks and a Carabelle Studio stencil.
This is my background:
Next I added stamping in black archival using Birgits leaf stamp plate by Carabelle Studio. I also stamped the leaves onto some master board deli paper, cut out and then added them to the journal.
I added some white stencilling with DecoArt paint and a TCW stencil.
Then stamped the phrase from Birgits Bloom stamp plate onto white card, mounted and added to the page.
I added some shading around the leaves using a grey Pitt pen.
I'm entering my page over at That's Crafty where the challenge is 'lovely leaves'
And also over at We Love to Create - the challenge is 'anything mixed media/creative goes'
Thanks for looking,
