Bringing Colour To Your Life by Fliss Goodwin



I have another colourful journal spread to share this week, partly because it's been rather sunny and warm this week and it really does feel like summer might be around the corner. I made good use of Lynne's fab new mark making stamps too.

What I Did:

I coloured my pages by scraping several bright shades of Multi Surface Paint diluted with water on to both pages with an old store card and then used the sides to add a few striped marks on the pages using up some of the left over paints.

I next used the round floral Dinky stencil with Magenta Multi Surface Paint to add some pattern on the pages near the edges. I pressed a plastic circular lid in the left over paint and made rough circular marks around the floral pattern.

I then took the long oval mark making stamp and using Versafine Clair ink in Purple Delight, used it to make 3 heart shapes on my pages by adding overlapping ovals stamped at an angle as you see from the main photo.

I stamped a scrap of ink spray paper in a pale colour with the alphabet texture stamp using the same purple ink and overstamped this with Ingrid's Boho Vibes single flower 3 times using black ink. I cut the images out close to the edges.

I added some interest to the heart shapes by taking a script stamp and stamping in the hearts with the purple ink, without using an acrylic block.

I used another of the mark making stamps with black ink to add a pattern round the edges of the pages, stamping off the pages to create a loopy border.

I stamped on a couple of Lynne's Affirmations with black ink and glued the flowers in place on the hearts to finish.
