Journal page in soft colors
I had decided that I really didn't want black ink on this page so it became a challenge. Let's face it black ink shows well on almost any color. I had used TH Distressed ink pads, faded jeans and fired brick, for the background, watering them down to make a softer effect. Using the faded jeans ink I stamped the Rogue Readheads background script stamp and the the Inkadinkado flourishes. The blue toned flowers are Modeling paste using a stencil, then rubbing the ink over the centers and leaves. The pink flowers were just ink and stencil.
The sentiment is from 7 Gypsyies, as soon as I saw it I knew I would buy it for this page. It too is stamped using the faded jeans ink.
This was a soothing page to work on, even though there were times I reached for the black ink pad....LOL
I do hope you'll take a moment and enlarge the picture. I purposely gesso rather sloppy for texture and also to leave some of the raw paper for the inks, paints, or what ever I am using to soak in and become a little darker.
So there ya have it, hope you lie it as much as I do.
