I'm trying to use my art journalling to help my stress and negative thinking so this page is all about hope and gratitude. It's based on the lessons learnt during this months Journal Journey and also inspired by IndigoBlu's challenge theme 'off the edge''. All the stamps I've used are from IndigoBlu.
The Journal Journey lessons were about inclusions and dye inks and the theme for March was nature. I sprayed a layer of the palest ink spray, then stamped and embossed the flowers to create a resist before adding darker shades on top and Distress ink on the edges - I also created a smaller panel which would become my inclusion. I stamped the grasses across the bottom in Stormy sky DI and round the top with the edge of 'Ella Bella'.
I created a little pocket on the inside of my inclusion and tucked in a tag with my journalling on.
I stamped the other side of the smaller panel with the sentiment and 'Ella Bella' (off the edge), heat embossed in violet pearl EP before splattering with ink and using Distress ink on the edges - I had to remember to leave a border along the right which became a folded flap tucked underneath to secure it to the main page.
I decided it needed more detail/layers so after adding strips of tissue tape I used grunge paste through a script stencil in the corners.
I'm also sharing my journal page here -
