The Power of You by Lynne Moncrieff




 
 
 

I made a notebook/journal featuring one of the Dina Wakley Silhouetted Woman and a positive message.

 

Supplies


Dina Wakley Stamp Sets - Silhouetted Women and Textures
TCW Stencils - Mini Harlequin Circles, Mini Love Post
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics - Sherbet, Blush, Lake Wanaka, Blue Oyster, Wisteria, Pansy, Little Black Dress, Purple Rain, Vanilla
Mister Bottle
Extras:- Artist sheet canvas, French book text, black wax chord, white mini pompom trim and paper of choice for insert

 

Instructions


Cut artist sheet canvas to approx 8.5”x 6.5”. Adhere torn pieces of book text with Gel Medium. Now have fun applying the various Fresco paints. Stencil Little Black Dress through stencils and also stamp the handwritten stamp from Textures with Little Black Dress. Add more stencilling with Purple Rain. Splatter Little Black Dress onto the cover. 
 
 
 
 
 

Stamp Silhouetted Woman and Art Saying with StazOn onto tissue paper. Adhere to front cover with Gel Medium. 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dilute Purple Rain with water and sponge onto pompom trim. Leave to dry. 
 

Paint the inside of the cover with Purple Rain.   
 
 
 
 
 
 

Form the notebook/journal by creating holes in the spine of the cover with a pokey tool or book binding tool. I worked with a variation on the pamphlet stitch as I worked with 3 holes. 

Simple embellish the edge of the front cover with the pompom trim.
 
 
 
 
 
 

(At a later date I might add beads to the ends of the chord and I also couldn’t decide if to place a frame/doodle around the Art Saying.)

 

Until next time,

Lynne
