Hi everyone. Today’s project is one of the That’s Crafty! A4 Journal pages that were featured on Hochanda in January. Love this whiteboard/greyboard surface allowing lots of paint and texture to be thrown on it! The journals come as a pack of 7 pages with book rings to hold the pages together.
I began with painting the page in various colours of PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Paints – Baltic Blue, Lake Wanaka, Toffee and Taupe. I used a large brush and worked with vertical brush strokes until I was happy with the background. Once dry I took some black gesso and an old credit card and added some vertical lines, added a little water to the paint and splattered and then sponged (cut and dry foam) the black gesso onto the boarder of the page.
I also randomly added paint to some white card using Baltic Blue and Toffee. Once dry I stamped the flower from That’s Crafty! stamp set – Beki and cut them out. I added a little more paint in places and highlights with a white Sharpie paint pen. I adhered them to the surface along with some black cotton.
Finally I stamped one of the wonderful quotes from Inspirational Quotes Set 1 and cut out the words. Once adhered to the surface I added some scribbly lines around them to highlight.
See you next week!
