Another week has flown by, it's Thursday already,
I need to do some dreaded housew**k,
it's cold and grey outside,
and not much better inside!
I made a cover for the second journal I got as
a present, so now it's all set up
and ready to go. I painted the A4 cover with some
blue/green metallic paint, which changes colour with the light,
and added some soft white in
the middle before stamping into the wet paint
with the swirl and script stamps. I don't need any ink on the stamps,
The wet paint gets picked up and transferred.
The floral part of the design
was made with a paper napkin. When it was dry
I stenciled on the birds and added some
I was pleased that the underlying stamping is still visible
through the paper napkin:
This was before the napkin went on:
Then I decided to alter a paper bag to make a pocket inside the
journal. Here it is still on my messy table:
Then I used some new and old stencils to liven it up,
adding some white dots to highlight it:
The front page was quickly painted and then stenciled:
Now I have a journal to fill with dreams.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Erika's lovely theme
of 'Tell me a story' and to
and to Stamps and stencils, swirls, whirls and flourishes,
and to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
And here are some icy and misty photos:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
