Kat here, hope you are all well,
today I would Like to shear with you the first page
in my board book journal,
firstly, when I sit down to create a page, I have no idea what it's going to be,
I gather some supplies & go for it,
so there is not many photos of the process because I forgot to take them,
(to caught up in the creativeness of it all)
love it when that happens, but the hours fly pass,
so straight to it.
I started by Gessoing the whole page with
then used distress stains in
tumbled glass, wild honey & bundled sage.
I then added the stamps,
I used coffee archival ink & the large splats
from the swirls, splats & dots A4 plate
in first & second generation ink around the edge,
& the grid background all over.
I stamped the into each day saying
with jet black archival ink
I then glued the collage images to the page
& finally doodled round the edge with a zig pen.
& I added a little shading round the images with a charcoal pencil.
Hope you like it!
I'll be back on the 25th with page number two,
see you then,
