Journal Challenge

I couldn't believe my luck a couple of weeks ago when my friend Darcy asked me if I would like to do a journal swap with her....excited but very nervous as her art work is fabulous.

This is my first page....

I started by layering Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints over the page and added snowflake to tone them down.

I stencilled Fresco paints through Darcy's stencils to create these lovely 'flower' (Well I think they are flowers) and the torn look edge,  I drew around these with a white gel pen and added dots for extra texture and detail.

The main image is a Crafters Workshop stencil - which I adore!  I stencilled Little Black Dress Fresco paint through and then dried before painting over to add colour.

My next step was to add a few fine sprays of glimmer mist to add a bit of colour and sparkle.

To finish I added a quote from Viva Las Vegas.... such a great quote!

Quite a flat page with little dimension but I was happy with the result!


  1. Love this layout, and the quote is brilliant!! Can't wait to see the journal as it develops

  2. Its a fab page, I love the quote. We will have lots of fun with these journals. X

  3. what a gorgeous page! I nearly got that stencil too, but haven't (yet!)

  4. This is gorgeous. Enjoy your arting with Darcy. Cxxx
