Gratitude Journal Pages
Created by Sophia Vida
With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought this would be a good time to share my gratitude journal pages I made using rubbers stamps in my 8.5″ x 11″ journal.
To begin, I coated the pages with gesso and added a few torn pieces of Tim Holtz’s printed tissue paper to the background with Mod Podge. Once that was dry, I painted the background with watered down acrylic paints in orange and pink. I used a wet wipe to remove some of the paint and allow the background to show through a little. I continued by adding shapes with white acrylic paint to the background.
While that was drying, I stamped my cupcakes on thick white cardstock using black Staz On Ink. I colored in the images with watercolor pencils and Sakura Gelly Roll Pens. I then cut 1.5″ slits in two of the cupcakes. I slid the base of the cupcakes in the slits to stack them and glued them into place. I wanted to add a little bling, so I accentd the cupcakes with Stardust Stickles.
I printed the sentiment on my computer using thick cardstock. I glued the sentiment and cupcakes into my journal and used distress ink for shading. And Voila! I added 2 more unique pages to my journal.
Hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
