For today's AALL & Create Guest Design Post I have made a small journal..
This was so much fun to make and here's how:
So, after die cutting Eileen Hulls wrapped journal I simply cut the flap that is on the right side off. I then added paint with some cut and dry foam. I used Dina Wakley's Heavy Body Acrylic Paints and these are my favourite colours. I then used the fabulous Lotza Dotz stencil and white acrylic paint to add the circles. I also used a brayer to add some more white paint here and there. You can see that in the next photo.
Next, I stamped Bipasha's 'Postbox & Phonelines' stamp in two parts on the cover. I used my stamping platform but had to put it on the rubber side because I folded the journal closed to get it all in the platform. I used some masking tape to keep it in place.
Next I stamped some more image from two other Bipasha sets on Mixed Media paper to colour and cut out. The idea is to collage them onto my book cover.
Here's a pic with the stamp sets I used. One (#23) is an older one but I love the eye and the lightbulb.
I also used the triangles as flags and the circles from the new stamp set (#231) as the wheels for the bicycle.
Here you can see it all together. I also cut out the words 'friends and family' to add as a sentiment. Of course I had to add white splatters too.
I love how it came out.. this is the front..
I put some signatures of paper in too and used elastic to keep them in place. I added some beads at the ends of the elastic.
The back once more..
I have used the following stamps:
#23 by Bipasha BK
#231 - Dial up by Bipasha BK
#228 - Postbox & Phonelines by Bipasha BK
#39 - Lotza Dotz by Autour de Mwa
