It’s been an age since I shared a circle journal page … so glad I can share this one. This is a really special one as although it’s a PATWITS circle journal… it is for one of my raggy doll sisters! The lovely Marie made a fab circle journal for us all to work in and the instructions were to do both sides of the page…. so here is my first side. I used a lot of different book print papers to add texture and pattern and then a mix of coral and autumn fire and terracotta and chalk fresco finish paint to do the background with some flicks of Bora Bora too. Then some iridescent medium through a heart stencil and lots of Darcy heart stamping and embossing. Then doodling and outlining and inking. The big heart I also gave a coat of the opal magic paint. Then found the he perfect quote for the page for Marie.
Next is the reverse and this time I went a little different.
I decided to do an ombre type background with the paints and then use the Lynne Perrella stamps as the main feature. I then grabbed the Darcy sentiment and some of the bits and pieces from the Artful Days goodie box to finish off.
Love how incredibly different both sides are and that they both started with similar colours but went pastel for one and rich for the other.
Hopefully Marie will like it too.
