Express Yourself

I'm back to my stack
of old luncheon napkins, and this time I went for the dark blue one with the leaf. This technique is so easy and at the same time... 1. Creates the prettiest pages 2. Uses a minimum of supplies 3. Is my very favorite method of creativity in my journal.

I adhered my napkin
with soft gel and brushed on a top coat... dried with heat tool. Added a strip of tissue tape... more soft gel... dried again... then some faux stitching with my Faber-Castell black Pitt pen. 

I cheated on my
journaling today and used Tiny Text Art stickers from Cosmo Cricket. Added an I Am Roses bloom coloring the center with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. I sprayed on some Fresh Lime Dylusions ink using the Crafters Workshop Mini Harlequin stencil. Stamped on black Archival ink with a crackle patterned rubber stamp.

I rubbed on a few
number rubbings from 7 Gypies and finished up with my go to soft charcoal pencil.
I'm linking my page to:

Thanks for the visit today!
