Last week I showed one of the large (A4) white/greyboard journal pages I had made. Today I am using the small versions – both were launched on Hochanda last week. These small pages are 5x3 inches.
I put 2 pages together – to make the front and back of a journal (when you add the ring binders) and added DecoArt Fluid acrylics in patches on the whiteboard side. (Cadmium Red, Cadmium Orange, Hansa Yellow and Blue/Green Light). I added some black with a credit card and adhered some book page scraps which I toned down with watered down colours. It was all still a bit too bright – so I dry brushed a little white paint randomly over the surface too.
Next I stencilled using That’s Crafty! Dinky stencils. I used Archival ink for the harlequins and raindrops and white paint for the circles (Bubbly All Over stencil). I stamped a couple of quotes from the new Inspirational Quotes stamp sets and cut out the phrases to fit.
Finally I added white and black doodles around the edges of the boards and words.
See you next week!
