Hello againGosh, whats happening I'm posting twice in one week - think that may just be a first for me!
The Challenge theme this month over at A Vintage Journey is Art Journalling with Tim and I'm here today to share my latest entry in my journal that I will be entering into AVJ 's Challenge and no doubt a few other challenges too.
I began by applying colour to my pages using Tim Holtz Wrinkle Free Distress technique and Distress Inks (Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Wilted Violet)
Next came the textured Wallflowers! I used Tim Holtz Wallflower layering stencil, Texture paste and Antique Linen Distress Paint. I used the stencil the right way round for the right hand page and then flipped it over and used the reverse side on the left hand page as I wanted to create a sense of balance so the viewing eye wouldn't be dragged just to the right. It was a lengthy process but definitely worth it .Using a dry brush I painted over the texture paste with some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle paint to add a touch of opulence and a little more texture . I also shadowed the wallflowers using a distress marker.
To finish off I dropped some glossy accents into the raindrops and once dry added white highlights to each of them.
I added a few remnant rubs and one of my favourite quotes- 'Each life needs its own quiet place!'
I would like to enter my journal pages into the following challenges
Craft Stamper - TIMI Challenge: October ''Take A Technique' Use one or more of the following processes in your art: Ink Stitch Paint Collage Print Paper (and include stamping somewhere!)
Thank you so much for popping by to take a peek at my journalling . Your visits, follows and comments are gratefully received and always appreciated . Time now for me to go and find my own quiet place before the creativity begins again !
Take care and hope to see you again soon
