Hello and welcome,
Hope your had an enjoyable weekend.
We are certainly enjoying some cooler weather here.
I thought it was time for another Journal Page. Nothing in particular inspired me for this piece, I just put some products in my hand and went for it. It has been a while. So here it is.
Randomly coloring the background.
I used a range of stencils here.
Used featured stamps here and another with script on it.
This is a surround I had previously die cut. I would normally throw these out but though I had better keep it. Glad I did because I used the top right hand corner flower for the journal page on the right hand side. This was cut using Tim's Tattered Floral's die.
Here it is.
Here I have die cut one of the shapes from Tim's Hardware Findings Die with Grunge board and sprayed it with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Dark Chocolate Truffle. (Love love love these sprays).
I love using Embossing paste...so much fun. A little goes along way.
I die cut some pen nibs from Tim's Writing Desk die using grunge paper..love this stuff. Let it dry .
Cover pen nib with clear embossing ink, pour on clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat emboss it, then dip some black soot distress paint onto the tip. Let it dry. This will go onto the dress form.
Previously for another project I had Inked some manilla folder, sprayed it with some Ink Refresher, then scrunched it up. Because I had inked it up before spraying refresher, the ink started to disappear. I was also going to throw this away and decided not to. So now for this project I could add some more ink with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and die cut shapes using Tim's Caged Bird die.
On white card stock I stamped some Typewriter Keys in Black Archival Ink. I then inked them with Pumice Stone, Gathered Twigs. Fussy cut them out and finished edges with black soot.
The Dress Form was previously cut from Grunge Board and Inked. The Clock was created using an embossing folder, then inked. The #5 and & symbol right hand side was die cut from Tim's Word Play die. The Flower was die cut from Tim's Tattered Floral's die. I used dimensional foam behind the Typewriter Keys, Flower and & Symbol. I also used Frayed Burlap and Gathered Twigs around the page edges.
I am so happy with this piece. I had a great time creating it too.
Any questions or comments please feel free to drop me a line. Always nice to know you stopped by.
Have a fabulous day!!
