I watched a video from the very talented Jenn Engle on YouTube and she used a die cut over another piece of paper to add texture to her art journal. I thought this was so cool that I had to try it out too.

I diecut the flourishes first in opposite corners and then adhered it to another page. I then added a layer of gesso.
Unlike Jenn I didn't use any paint in this page. I coloured it with Distress Crayons only. I have had these for ages and I don't really use them. I scribbled them on and then smudged them with my fingers. I sealed the page by rolling gel medium on to the gelli plate and 'printing' it onto my page. I then did some random stamping.
I chose my main image, stamped her, coloured her lightly and cut her out. I adhered her on some washi tape so she isn't floating. The sentiment was stamped, cut into strips and adhered also. Lastly I doodled around the page and the words and that was it !
All the supplies I used are by Ranger/Tim Holtz.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
