Hello everyone, I have a project that is a departure from my usual projects today. We are exploring texture on the Design Team Blog this month, and I decided to create a two page journal spread, using layers to give a feeling of texture to the pages.
I have an A4 Pink Pig Journal, several in fact, and used one of these to create my project. The pages are quite robust for adding water, paint, etc. I started by
sprinkling Turquoise, Violet and Lime Green Brusho onto the pages, (which I had placed newspaper
underneath, so that I could keep the rest of the journal dry), and then
spritzed the pages with water. I used two large spare pieces of
watercolour paper to blot the pages, so that the excess water did not
run everywhere, and I now have two extra pieces of background for other projects.
I added some stencilling with both Distress Inks and white paint. I chose to use in particular Three Quarter Face, and added a stamped image from the Texture Fragments stamp set below to give the suggestion of a lacy dress. I also added an image from the Tangled Fragments stamp set and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to build up the background layers. I added a few bottle top ring marks using left over white paint to echo the circular stencil that I had used.
Finally, I added sentiments from the Positive Pants and Rockstar Diva stamp sets.
