Today I've been working in my journal and I wanted to share my pages with you.
So the journal I've been using today is my smaller Dylusions journal and I had a bit of trouble getting started with this page and it sat staring at my blankly for quite a while. So a few days ago I had watched a YouTube video by Marta Lapkowska (here) where she was demonstrating a whole load of ways to get started and get over the blank page fear lol!
So I used one of her techniques which she uses in the video which is sticking a load of washi tape strips to the page then adding a layer of white gesso.
So that was how I got started today, then I added some grunge paste through the Paperartsy numbers stencil - oops I didn't take any in progress pics today!
Once dry I started spraying with Lindy's stamp gang sprays before adding some background stamping with some Sara Naumann (ESN11) stamps.
Then I stamped all the flower heads from Darcy stamp set (EDY11) and Kim's stamp set (EKD01) onto the gelli prints I made last weekend.
I stamped the flowers onto my journal pages then cut out and added all the heads. Then into all the flower head circles I added some Posca paint pen.
I inked around the edges of the pages in black ink and highlighted the grunge paste using white fire treasure gold.
Coloured the flower stems in with a green Sakura glaze pen and then added the sentiment which is a Tim Holtz sticker.
I added some shading and white one highlights to the flowers and the sentiment as well.
So the current challenge over on the Paperartsy blog is Mono Printing so I am entering my page into this challenge.
Thanks for looking today!!
