Hope this brightens your day

 Hello everyone, 

For today's Guest Design project for AALL & Create I made a journal page. 

Here's how I made this:

On a piece of 6 x 6 Mixed Media paper I heat embossed this fabulous stam and then dunked it into Distress Oxide inks. I used Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. I then splashed some water on it to create some lighter spots. 

I also stamped the flower I wanted to use as a focal point. 

Next I used this fab stencil by Bipasha to add more interest. 

Next, stamping. I used grey and black ink to add some dark areas. Later I used a brayer and some white paint to tone it down slightly but also to make it look a little more shabby. 

I have actually stamped this stamp whole and keep cutting out the pieces that I want. 

The flower is now coloured. I used Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick to colour it. For the middle I just added some yellow dots with a paint pen. 

Here is is all put together. I matted the page on some black card stock and then glued it into my journal.

#543 - Reckoner Digits by Tracy Evans

  1. This is a favourite colour combination of mine, Corrie, and the embossing in the background is beautifully set off by that black border. Masterful floral focal point, too!!!

  2. Beautiful creation. Lovely colours and great focal flower. X
