Blossoms in my Journal



This started with layering cs strips and squares onto the page.  Then a coat of Gesso, then a lot of thinking about it.  I don't have all my stash with me so I have had to be inventive.  I took TH Distresses pads, brick red and denim blue and rubbed the page, then spritzed it with water and blended it with my fingers.  After that dried I took other TH Distressed ink pads and just stamped them all over.  Next there was a stencil added with Denim Blue ink. Once all that dried I did seal it with a spray sealant. Loved the pastel look and the dimension the stacked cs created, but it needed something else to add some depth, so I inked up a script background stamp from Rogue Redhead Designs and went over the whole page......waaaalaaa!!  I chose a set of flowers and stamped them up through the middle, coloring them with Reflections brush pens, then outlined them with a white paint pen.
Here is a closer shot of the page that shows more of the dimension the stacked cs made, LOVE the under pattern this made!
Definitely not of my normal process, but I will attempt this again.  It did take more thought process than actually art process, and yes this did take me a couple of days to "process" this page....LOL

So that's it for this Saturday, hope your weekend is great and full of inspiration!
