I have my usual large journal on the go. Darcy then asked me to do a journal swap with her (which I jumped at) and then I found small Cath Kidston journals less than half price in the local shop. They are really cute too - scalloped edges!
I started off by gluing pages together to strengthen them.
I then couldn't wait to start creating. Here is my first page.
I started by lightly misting the page and sprinkling it with Infusions. I am still totally in love with these. I dried this with a heat tool because I am far too impatient!!
Next I started to stamp various Everything Art Paper Artsy stamps in Archival ink across the background.
The main image was stamped onto card stock and coloured using Polychromos. I glued it to my page and then went around it using a black pencil.
In order to make the quote stand out I used a dab of stone paint and spread it over an area big enough for the quote. Once dry I stamped the quote in Archival ink and rubbed a black border around it with my finger.
I then started to scribble and draw with a black fine liner.
To finish, I added a crown which I distressed with a bit of black paint.
I am really happy with the end result. A great first page in my new small journal!
Thanks for looking.....
