Making Your Mark Journal Pages by Fliss Goodwin



I have some more journal pages to share this week as it seems we have an Indian Summer at the moment with lovely warm sunny weather so I wanted a bright project to celebrate the temporary return of summer.

What I Did:

I coloured the pages first using diluted multi surface paints (mustard, yellow, teal), applying them with sponges for a soft look. I then added a little stencilling with one of the round Dinky stencils and teal multi surface paint.

I next stamped on the letter texture stamp, randomly over both pages using Fossilized Amber Archival Ink. I stamped the circle trio from one of Lynne's ever useful mark making sets with Cactus Flower Archival ink for a bright contrast.

I then racked my brain over the embellishments I should use and hit upon the idea of continuing the circle theme. I did this by stamping the texture rose stamp with black ink on white card, overstamping in black with the script stamp from the same set.

I found some rather murky ink spray overflow paper in my bits box which was sort of greyish with touches of bright pink so I over stamped it with the script stamp using the pink Archival ink and cut out rough circles to set my roses on.

I added the roses to the pages, 5 for balance, then roughly painted Rose flat matte spray round each circle to make it pop.

I finished off my pages by rubbing pink ink round the edges, stamping down the vertical edge of each page with another mark making stamp using Cobalt Archival ink. I added text stamped on white card with black ink, cut into word tiles, edges inked with pink and matted on more of the murky stamped overflow paper.
