I have another circle journal page to share for the Patwits envelope journal. This time it is Deborah’s journal and her construction is similar to mine but bigger!
I decided to go all Teesha Moore style. I started with painting the envelope with the Bora Bora paint.
I then cut a piece of paper to the size of envelope (not the base where it opens) and added a base of Autumn fire Paperartsy fresco finish paint and then added all the magazine collage papers. I then added stamping to them using a mix of number and word stamps from my Hot Picks stamp sets.
I then stamped the queen stamp onto some paper I had coloured with Paperartsy fresco finish paint. I then added that to the envelope and added black paint for the borders and then some doodling and the sentiment. I used white paint pen to add the dots.
I then added some dots through the stencil for the inside part of the envelope still visible as it needed some pattern too!
Next I decorated a tag to peek out of the envelope. The envelope is partly sealed which means it fits perfectly in the gap and sits in the middle!
I decorated both sides … but the back gas a message for Debs so only showing the front of the tag here…
I used brushos and distress stains to add colour and then black paint through a stencil to add the zig zags. Then I used gesso to mute a bit of the colour and pattern and added Darcy’s feather stamp and gilded it with the gilding flakes.
I added the tiny dots to add some interest to the left hand zig zags and then stamped the sentiment from the same Darcy stamp set onto a scrap of paper I had stamped a background onto with Distress oxide. I cut that out and added that on the top.
And a sneak peek of the other side of the tag… I used distress oxides and another Paperartsy stamp set to create this autumnal leaf tag! I stamped the leaves with a mix of archival inks to make it a red and brown leaf and then clear embossed… I love my stamp platform for making these techniques so easy!
So there you go… another Patwits circle journal page complete. I hope Debs likes my experimental Teesha Moore style page.
