My Latest Journal Page

Today has dawned damp and dark again here in my bit of Cornwall, so depressing !  I hope you have better weather and the sun is shining on you wherever you are in the world.

The project I'm sharing with you today is a journal page which I completed recently.  I haven't done much journaling in the past few months and had lots of fun allowing this page to grow and change as I worked on it with no real plan - just allowed my imagination freedom to develop.

Here's a couple of close up shots

My journal has black pages so I first used gesso on the page before starting.  The left side of the page design was created on a sheet of linen finish cardstock and then adhered to the journal page. 

I used the following tools and materials:-

  • Vision INKcognito stamp byVisible Image
  • Linen finish cardstock
  • Ken Oliver's Colour Burst Pigment
  • Memory Box Stencil - Texture Rings and Puddles; Garden; Alpha Worn Out (to create words on left side image)
  • Heidi Swapp Butterflies Stencil
  • TCW Stencil
  • Organic fibres (I believe it was made from banana leaves)
  • Stampendous Aged Gold Frantage
  • Distress Paint in Sapphire
  • Distress Inks - Cracked Pistachio; Fossilised Amber, all applied using a round blending tool) 
  • Black Archival Ink
  • Black Pitt Pen
  • White Signo Uni Ball Broad Pen
  • Masking Fluid
  • Ranger Transparent Texture Paste
That's it from me, I hope you enjoyed your visit today, tomorrow I think I'll share some sewing I've been doing lately.

Have a great day whatever you have planned.

This looks such a fabulous page Wynneth. So much fabulous detail in it and colours are great. I find the ones I don't ponder on too much sometimes work really well
