New starts, little things are the big things

Today is a new start kind of day! I went back to work after three months off sick. So it seems appropriate to share something made in my new Dylusions journal (yes I have started another journal)!

Here is a picture of the page from about 3/4 of the way through the process…

As you can see in the pictures below I had some issues with the tissue stamping and adhering it to the page… This is the second time it went wrong but decided to stick with it!

This is the point I left the page overnight to dry (and because it was quite late at night already).

A couple of days later I finished the page.

Absolutely love how it finished up. Beautiful colours and love the dragon fly which I cut out of the Animal Kingdom colouring book and coloured using Promarkers and those fabulous stamps by Kim Dellow for Paperartsy.

Hope you like it.

Here is another picture in the sunshine… love a bit of natural light!

Now off we go on our new starts … remembering of course to enjoy the little things.

Happy crafting!

  1. This is lovely. What do you use to stick the tissue on? I use Matt or gloss medium. Also, the best tissue to use is the cheapest kind, the better stuff is too shiny and doesn’t absorb the medium to blend it in to the paper background.

  2. That’s beautiful!!! You can never have too many journals!
    Hope your return to work goes OK!
