Scribbled Hearts

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today! So the current Paperartsy challenge is scribbles/doodling - you can check out all the info HERE.

I made a journal page today for this challenge....

Started by adding washi tape to my page then a light layer of white gesso.

Then I scraped on three Fresco colours - Bora Bora, Coral and Zesty Zing.

Next I added stamping and stencilling in black archival ink. The stencil was a TCW one and the stamps were the second everything art set by Paperartsy.

It was all looking a bit bright so I gave it a couple of coats of watery Snowflake to calm it down a bit.

Then added the border using a Paperartsy stencil by Darcy which has a wavy edge.

I used some old teabags, gave them a slight wash with white and then added my doodling. Then layered them up with some hearts chipboard and black ribbon scraps.

Then added some more doodling to the page using black and white pen...

Finally I added the white dots around the edges of the page and some stencilling in white with the Paperartsy numbers stencil.

Thanks for looking today and don't forget to stop by the Paperartsy blog and check out the lovely DT pieces.

  1. Love this, especially the peek through to the layers underneath x

  2. Loved the colours before you muted them with the snowflake, fab border and doodling, looks a great double spread xx

  3. Love the background and the black border looks very effective.

  4. This is great, so effective Claire, I just couldn't do the doodling. I tried!
