A Great Adventure- Journal Layout.  

A Great Adventure, journal layout

i always seam to do double layouts in my journals, i cant seam to get my head around having two different things on opposite pages lol but i’m not bothered i love working the doubles.
using some of my  June DT kit from Thompsons Craft supplies
i also used some cardboard from a box, some hand made stamps, some stamped and aged circles , some washi tape and some gesso.
i cut  out some of the paper to fit the right hand side of my double layout and then tore round the edges,
 with what  was left , 2 pieces from the side and bottom, i tore round them and turned them sideways and glued to the other page,  so both of my pages were covered i then added some washi tape and the torn off pieces from my main sheet to add the next layer.
i then scraped some white gesso over the pages to soften it down.
when it was dry i then added the Ocean paint using my finger, just here and there.
i chose my dragonfly and butterfly and sponged with the ocean paint.
i splattered with some black watercolour paint
i then layered up my card, stamps, butterfly tracing paper, distressed circle and butterfly/dragonfly, working both sides at the same time.
lastly i found my title , mounted onto some card then added them to my layout and using a journalling pen i framed the title and both the pages but not down the centre.

Moments in Time – Art Journal

  •  Art Journal –  Moments in Time
another design for Thompsons craft supplies


for this project i used…..

AB studio craft bundle 2 papers

fabrika Decoru metallic spray- sepia and gold

color glow – ruby

idea ology – vintage photobooth

i also used the stencil from the retreat kits.

from my stash i used…… black gesso, whits gesso, clear gesso and heavy paste.

firstly i painted my pages with the black gesso, i then lightly went over with the white.

i then fussy cut the black and white flowers and stuck them down with 3d gel and then stencilled on with the paste that i coloured with brow paint, it came out more of a pink!

i then fussy cut from the other sheets in the paper pack and layered them up using 3d foam pads and 3d gel.

lastly i painted over all the paper elements with the clear gesso, it just adds a bit of strength to the papers.

Together – Scrapbook Layout

Together – Scrapbook Layout

the first of my projects for Thompsons craft supplies
with lots of fussy cutting but quite a simple layout.
for this project i used……
also from my stash i used some clear gesso, blackgesso, loose weave hessian and white acrylic paint.
firstly i went over my bas page with some clear gesso, i like to do this as for one thing it makes the page a bit stronger plus if i then decide to add some ink it allows it to move and be on top of the page rather than just sink where it hits!
it just happens that it had a little it of red ink on my paint brush that i didn’t notice so it coloured the page a little but that was good it fitted in with the colour scheme really well.
i then cut a circle from my hessian and placed it in the middle of my page, i then did some fussy cutting, lots of fussy cutting lol
i painted my “together” title and my butterfly white, then placing the photo raised on 3d foam pads in the middle i then added my fussy cut pieces, title and butterfly and built the circle up until i was happy with the result.
i finished with some white splatters and black splatters.
love a bit of splattering!!
