Fall in love ..

Hello everyone,

I have made another art journal... being back from holiday has its advantages.. no more rushing around to get my DT work done ! I actually have time to play again ! Yay ! I had been wanting to use these images by Vera Lane Studio for ages. I coloured them whilst on holiday in July.

I started by brayering these two pages in my mini Moleskine journal with two shades of pink and two shades of green, waiting for it to dry between colours. I didn't like it.. lol
So I painted it over with white and then wiped it with a baby wipe in an attempt to tone it down. Still didn't like it... 
I then used a stencil by Tim Holtz and more white paint.... I liked it. Yay, result !
Next I struggled to think what else to add on the page, besides this lovely girl and her hearts... In a dark drawer I found a gift bag with flowers on it so I cut one of the flower stems out and adhered it to the bottom of the page. Nice ! I added some shading and then added the girl and the hearts. 
Lastly I added a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker. 

I really like the end result. 
I used a digital image by Vera Lane Studio and you'll find it HERE. 


  1. Love the flowers from the gift bag, gives your piece an oriental feel. Lovely background and focal image. Love it Corrie. Tracy x

  2. Love this very much Corrie. It's fabulous!

  3. It may have taken several layers before you were happy with the background, but it was well worth persevering... I love the end result! And the gift bag flower stems are the perfect addition to your little fairy scene.
