I have a few journal pages that I need to share with you. I’ve published so many posts that I thought these were on my blog but apparently I left them out. I had bought a hard cover 8.5″ x 11″ journal at the craft store on sale, which is always a plus!
The ivory colored pages are a decent weight with a little texture. However, they’re not thick enough to work well with water so I have to make sure to give the pages a good coat of gesso before starting.
Once the gesso was dry, I painted the background with yellow and orange acrylic paint. For a little texture I used a stencil with fiber paste which I later distressed and sprayed with glimmer mist.
The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper that I cut and glued into the journal along with the green stems I also painted on scrap paper. I added a leafy vine stencil to the background with distress inks.
Next I stamped “create some magic” with black staz on ink directly into the journal. I highlighted both pages with stickles, distressed the pages a bit and Voila! I had 2 fun, fall colored journal pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
