Hi - over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges our new theme for this month is 'Words'. I love using book pages, text stamps and quotes on my projects so this was right up my street and I created a Journal page for Journal 52 prompt Gratitude. The background of the page is created using Colourcraft Aquawax (a new product to me) which I randomly spread over the centre area of white cardstock. Once dry I applied Alcohol ink leaving some white space and then blended Walnut stain distress ink. Finally I used a JOFY stamp to add the hint of texture.FLONZ and I've stamped it in Stazon over an old book page, then layered on Tim Holtz patterned paper and burlap.
I wanted it all to give the idea of being grateful for my family - particularly my nieces/nephews and great nieces/nephews who bring such joy hence the images of children.
I'm sharing my page here -
