The Penmaker and I are
snowed in... well actually we could get out if we wanted to, but who wants to drive in snow if you don't have to. So I'm working on my journal. I've tried to do a page everyday, but today I did a little extra...
Day #6 really didn't have
any techniques or tips so I had left a blank page to go back to and fill in with a project. This was the perfect time to do that. I started with a piece of white cardstock... added gesso and laid down a piece of jute as a type of flourish. Glued some bits of music sheet patterned paper down and painted over all with white acrylic... dabbing a little off of the music paper. I applied a thick coat of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and when it was dry, sponged on Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then sprayed it with Tattered Leather, Patina, and English Ivy Glimmer Mist. Gave it a shot with my heat tool, then stamped on the Tim Holtz butterflies and verse with Coffee Archival Ink. Lots of fun!
This is what I've done
with some of my other pages... here was the beginning.
I'm using scraps and gluing
them down in color themes... not really trying to make something great... just exercising...
adding my notes from each session...
trying to take in what
the Jump Starters have to offer to help me to be more creative...
and loving every minute!
