Hello everyone and welcome, it's great to see you here. Have you noticed the days are turning a little longer? Yep, here in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring will soon be here, - I for one can't wait.
Today I am sharing a journal page, created with thoughts of Spring in my mind.....
Encyclopedia Botanica. I also used one of the cool Blue Print Stamps by Tim Holtz, the Classics No 1 In addition I used the following sets and other products for my page:
Journaling Words 2 & 3
Chicken Wire Background
Dylusions Ink Sprays in Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange, Vibrant Turquoise and Melted Chocolate
Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Wild Honey, Pumic Stone, Aged Mahogany, Dusty Concord
Dylusions Stencils Dotted Flower and Diamond of a Border
Archival Ink Jet Black.
Mini Mister filled with water
Kitchen roll, Embossing Ink and white embossing powder from my stash
The page itself was water colour paper
First I created the background with my choice of colours of Dylusion Sprays, Distress Inks and my two stencils. I played around with it until I was happy with the results
I used one of the stencils for the so called "ghosting technique": You spray water through your stencils, leave it in place for a few moments, then lift it and use kitchen roll the lift of excess moisture. As if by magic the base colour of ink appears through darker colours on the top.
When I was happy with my background I stamped the Chicken Wire background and Blue Print stamps in various places as shown.
