Unfortunately one of our circle journals never made it back to its owner … and the lovely Chris who organises us all is without her journal. Some of us have made her pages to bind into a journal in the hope that it goes some way to replacing the lost artwork.
Here is what I made…
I added black gesso through the stencil, then some washi tape and then lots of bright brushos and added Matt medium to stabilise them. I love how this dragged some of the gesso across in streaks too.
I then stamped onto separate panel the Hot Picks image and adhered that. Then stamped the sentiment below. I kept this page quite simple with just a little bit of gold pen accents.
The other side however was far more detailed and I’ve done this on YouTube so you can check out my process.
However here is the finished page.
The whole process took several hours but I managed to get the video down to about 10 mins.
I was on a roll and thought why not make another page.
I love paper piecing the Clare Lloyd girl. And the colours for this page really spoke to me. The reverse side I have a different feel but with similar colours with the fun Lin Brown house stamp.
