Today I am sharing a journal page featuring a variety of Diana Wakley stencils and stamps.

StazOn Jet Black
Fabric Scraps and Lace Rose
Old Credit Card or Plastic Palette Knife



Apply Tuberose to watercolour paper with old credit card. Apply one swipe of Fired Brick.

Adhere fabric scraps with Gel Medium.

Stencil woman with Black Soot. Journal around the woman. Embellish her hair with a lace rose.


Stamp Handwritten Quote. Above quote stencil words with fineliner pen.


Until next time,



  1. I love the writing around the hair! Awesome.

  2. This is taking me back to summerdayes, of happy flowers blooming and lovely colours every where, dear Lynne. So sweet with the fabric scraps, and the lovely rose. And I ,too love your writing around her !! Hug from Dorthe

  3. Looks wonderful Lynne, what a great journal page! Like Dorthe says, it has such a lovely summery feel, just what we need on a dull November day!

  4. So beautiful Lynne and love your use of those pretty fabric scraps which go so well with the vintage girl stencil.

  5. Lynne, I have always loved your vintage style. That said, I really, really love this new road you are exploring! Keep tantalizing us! Hugs, Yvonne

  6. This is fun and lovely Lynne, I love your journaling around the face!! And I don't know how you do that, but your backgrounds and brushstrokes are always terrific!!! Hugs, Coco xx

  7. I love the explosion of colour behind the striking image of the girl. Those scraps of 'shabby chic' fabric are just gorgeous too! Your technique of journaling around the image is just perfect on this project too. I really enjoy your experimental work as much as your exquisite vintage pieces. All your work is always so imaginative and magical. xxx

  8. I love the colours on this piece and it has a wonderfully fresh and feminine feel without being too girlie! Love the little fabric pieces.
