Hi everyone and a very warm welcome to my blog!!
I have been procrastinating over this post all day, trying to make up my mind as to what to share with you. I have a few projects on the go at the moment and couldn't decide as to which one to do first but, finally, the decision has been made.
I would like to share another Art Journal page.
I've called it 'Bubbles' for obvious reasons but haven't yet found a quote to put on it. Not even sure if I want one for this page. I just enjoyed the process and am not really fussed about any words for it but, you never know, I may come across something someday that will fit.
The background was created by putting different Distress Inks on my non-stick mat and then just placing the page on the top. This seems to be the best process for me. I have tried so many times coating the page with gesso and then using sprays for the colour but it just never works, so I think Distress Inks are going to be my 'thing' as far as my Journal pages are concerned anyway. The colours I used are Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Walnut Stain.
The large circles or 'bubbles' were stamped with BoBunny's Stained Texture stamps on a separate piece of paper the smaller ones were hand drawn. They were then cut out and coloured and then glued onto the page and edged with a black and a white pen. The smaller ones were also stamped with another BoBunny Texture Stamp. I also place some washi tape in two of the corners.
Used TCW's 'Mini Grandma's Doily' template in opposite corners and went around some of the edges of the design with a white gel pen. Did some stamping with Kaisercraft's Crackle stamp and used TCW's Mini Circle Explosion template as well. The floral stamp around the edge is also from Kaisercraft but I don't know the name of it.
And that's about it!! A fairly simple page although it did take a while to do, mainly because I'm never sure which direction these pages of mine are going to go. As I said at the beginning, I procrastinate, in all manner of ways (sigh).
Thank you so much for visiting.
Take care and God Bless.
