I cannot stop using the Mandala stamps and this week I have made another journal page in my 8x8 journal.
Products I Have Used
Bee Crafty Inkable Stencils
Bee Crafty Stamps
Distress Oxide Inks
Black Archival Ink
I started off by using the oxide inks and blending them over the page. I then sprinkled the page with water and placed a tissue over to mop the excess ink away and allowed the page to dry thoroughly.
I added some detail using the white pen and then layered the smaller mandala on top of the larger one.
I cut some strips of card and stamped the words using the Saltwater Taffy ink and used a small stamp from the Doodle Art Sunflower to create an edging to the strips of card. The stamp is actually curved but can easily be straightened when you put it on your block.
I added some Distress Oxide ink to the edges of the strips before adhering them under the edges of the mandala stamp. I felt that my page needed more detail so I added some of the coffee stain stamps in Saltwater Taffy and white ink to the background. Finally, I added some detail around the edges of the page, the centre image, and the word strips with a black pen.
Thank you for looking at the blog this week.
