My eleventh art journal page.
This is possibly my second favourite.
I started with a piece of scrapbook paper
Squared Papermania Happy days
I clear embossed the swirls & borders top & bottom
before spraying re-inker sprays in
Spiced Marmalade/ Fired Brick
Wild Honey/ & a mix of Fired Brick with Mandarin
Perfect Pearls for shimmer.
I added the Tattered Bird & Text (both TH)
by stamping onto tissue & apply with gel medium.
Flowers & butterflies - ISC Friendship plate.
I stamped the images in Hero Arts Cup o Joe
& edged the page with Rusty Hinge/Barn Door
You might not see but the page was also over-stamped
with script & a crackle stamp using Apricot & Sand Hero Arts inks.
Images coloured with Big Brush Pitt Pens.
I loved the quote & felt the background squares gave
an industrial/urban look.

Two More Mini Journal Pages

 With this one I coloured my pages orange
& then applied homemade texture paste through
the stencil while the background was still slightly wet.
It gave this fab paler orange texture.
Stencil - TCW

This started off as reduction stencilling,

but then, I started to add touches of
colour to make the stars & flowers pop.

only one more spread to go and my mini is finished!!
