Missed your call...

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a double artjournal spread. I was supposed to be a single page but this sort of happened and I just went along with it. I really enjoyed this one; Miss Dee cracks me up! 

Here's how I made it:

I used my Dylusions journal for this. It is the 8" x 8" one. I put this stencil on the right hand page; I added some temporary glue underneath because it was not entirely lying flat. 

I sprinkled pigment powders over it, yellow and red for the flowers, teal and green for the leaves. I then spritzed it with water. 

I then took the stencil off and dried it with my heat tool. 

Next I put the stencil back on and went through the holes with a black pen. Not sure if this made it better... 

There was so much ink still on the stencil.... I usually put it on a paper towel but I forgot to put one out so I put it on the left page. I really liked that ! I decided to make it into a double spread. 

Of course it was much to bright for me so I used a brayer and some paint to tone it down. I didn't use white paint this time but something close to the colour of the paper in the book. 

I think putting the paint over the top made the pages more to a coherent whole spread. When the paint was dry I randomly stamped the pages. Not too much as I liked it the way it was. 

Added some washi tape. 

Next I coloured Miss Dee with my Copics and cut her out. 

After putting down some more of the same washi tape I glued Miss Dee and the sentiment into place. I really like the end result. 

Here is the right hand page...

  1. I had to pop over from FB to see how you created that fabulous background for the spread. So cool. Thanks for sharing step-out photos and instructions.

  2. This is just delightful, and the sentiment cracks me up! I'm always amused by your playful nature, my friend.
