Travel, Explore, Fly Journal Page by Mandy C



Kaisercraft Numbers Stamp 
The Octopode Factory ‘steampunk words’
Tim Holtz ~ Bitty Grunge
Ruler Stamp ~ try this one
Black Archival Ink
Mechanical Mask
Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste ~ Gunmetal and Gold
Watercolour Pencils
White Card


I’ve done this page in a small journal (A5 size) you can of course make a card or tag in a similar way.


·       Apply your Gelatos to your journal page and blend with a baby wipe. Add some of the Distress paint around the edge. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Using the mask add some of the ‘gunmetal’ texture paste through it. Dry.

·       Stamp the numbers at opposite corners using the Watering Can Archival ink.

·       Add a piece of corrugated card from packaging across the bottom.

·       Stamp the dress form, butterflies and cogs using the black Archival wherever you like on the page. Then stamp the butterflies and the top half of the dress form onto card. Cut out. Stamp out a ruler and cut out.

·       Glue (using the Cosmic Shimmer Glue) the cut out stamped images onto the page.

·       Stamp out the steampunk words and add to the page.

·       Stamp the ‘wall’ from the Bitty Grunge set in places where the page looks empty.

·       Using a sponge add some of the pewter Pan Pastel around the dress form.

·       Add some shading with  watercolours.

·       Dot some of the gold texture paste around the page.

·       Edge with the brown chalk ink.

·       Add some white highlights if you feel your page needs it.
