IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE STUCK ON U SKETCHES BLOG HOP CLICK HERE.Hi everyone. Well I have been wanting to start a journal for a while now and I am finally doing it. To me this is a great place for me to try out new techniques etc. There are so many things out there that I have not tried and I want to. So the journal is now happening and I hope to create a 2 page spread per month with it. Today I have the inside cover and page 1. The Flying Unicorn has started a monthly journal challenge that helps give some inspiration to those of us just learning hehe.
The cover is canvas covered so I applied some gesso first. Once that was dry I sprayed it with water and started to spray on some SHIMMERZ Spritz in Truffle, some Coloringz in Mama sings the blues and some Vibez in Jeni B Bleu. The water helps the 3 colors to mesh, and you do not use much! Use a heat tool while they are wet and move them around....as it starts to dry spray on some water to make them run more as you dry them. FUN FUN FUN. I then added some drywall tape for texture in the background, and I did some stamping with bubble wrap and some masking with black acrylic paint and molding paste.
My first page is a watercolor paper and I have used the same steps as the cover for this. The corrugated hearts have some gesso on them and some SHIMMERZ Spritz in Bed of Roses. After everything was in place on my pages I added lots of black Gelatos to the edges and the hearts. Just wet your finger and smudge the Gelatos.
And here is a little tease for you :)
Well that was FUN. I wonder what I will want to try next month in my journal? Most of the supplies are available at the Flying Unicorn store. I hope that you all have a fantastic week! Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping
