Hello and welcome,
Today I have another journal page to show....which I have titled......A Privileged Journey! I found this image on Pinterest and as soon as I saw her I knew she had to be showcased. What an exquisite photo in all her beautiful wears. Her posture just screams confidence. I wonder what she did each day and whom she knew. Shall we give her a name?? Why not.....Clara Rose Winterton....was Ms Winterton running a milliner's empire at the turn of the century or was she an author? Perhaps she sat around in her parlor all day sipping English Tea. I love the way they dressed back in the day. True ladies.
The Grunge key I made for this piece is an idea I picked up over at A Chief's Wife heart's A Fire....Lyla is a very talented lady and has some videos on You Tube also. Check out her blog here.....http://larimore2.blogspot.com.au/
Ok now lets get to the journal pages.
My double page.
Lets get started...randomly applying Distress Stains.
Adding image with Multi Medium Matte and over the top to seal the image.
Now for some stamping...I just love these new stamps called Stationers Desk by Prima.
OMG!! This part was a lot of fun using Tim's Spritzer, what a joy to use. I used Distress Marker Forest Moss.
Now randomly adding some Crackle Paint for added texture.
Not too sure this was such a good idea once it had dried as it is shiny. Pages curl up too.lol.
Somewhere here I did some stenciling with Black Texture Paste, the photos didn't turn out
Adding Distress Ink to the middle of the two pages.
450 Glue is excellent for ribbon and dries fast.
Here is a tag I had made a while ago for another challenge. I decided it was time to use it on something.
Adding some other elements behind the tag. Notice I managed to slip in some gears.
Adding some rub-ons onto the tiny tag.
Place a hole in the top of film strip to put a brad through and glue the embellishment on top.
Some keys cut from Grunge board. I cut three but only used two.
Gluing them together.
Now to apply some Distress Paint. Once dry apply Embossing Ink and Black Embossing Powder and heat set. Repeat the heat embossing process twice. I only used the black key on this project.
Filling in the gaps with a black marker.
Adding a Delish Brad to my key.
By this stage I can feel my page getting quite heavy with the large embellishment in the left hand top corner, so I decided to add some thin card board to the back of my page for extra support.
The finished piece.......
Well that's all from me today. I hope you like this post. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask a question.
Have a great day!!!
