I have been using my texture paste this week to do another page in my 8x8 journal.
Products I have used.
Dina Wakley Shimmer Sprays
Black Archival Ink
After putting some word washi along the join of my pages, I added a layer of gesso over the page. I then randomly tore some of the Dina Wakley Collage paper into strips and adhered them with collage medium.
I then added some of the Engineering Washi, again torn into random strips and followed this with some tissue I had used to catch any spray from previous projects.
To add extra texture to the page, I used the circle stamp from Journal Art Elements 1 and black archival ink to stamp around the edges. Clearly the texture paste was the only part of the page to take the stamps giving a distressed look to the stamp.
I then repeated the same process on the centre of the page, but with one of the circle stamps from Journal Art Elements 2 and Faded Jeans Archival Ink. I decided that I wanted the circles to stand out more so using a Posca open I drew around the edges of the texture paste circles.
Next, I stamped the dragonflies from the Doodle Art Dragonfly regular and XL stamp sets onto white card and coloured them using Ecoline pens and cut them out. I go around the edges of my stamps with a black pen, but this is completely optional. I also added some extra detail with white Posca pen. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Handwritten words onto a scrap of white card and cut out. I edged the card with Faded Jeans distress ink to add depth and then mounted it on a second piece of white card.
Finally, I adhered the dragonflies along the centre of their bodies and sentiment onto the page using Collage Medium.
Many thanks for looking at the blog today. I hope you all get a chance to do some crafting this week.
