Good evening friends,
I created a page in my Large Dylusions Journal Book, last night, and wanted to share with you today. I have titled this page “Love is in the Air.” Yesterday, was Valentine’s Day for the USA. Whatever that means you?? To me it’s a day that companies try to make money off of people. But, it keeps the economy going right! Well I wanted to play in my journal book last night and this is what happened…
I sat down last night with the intent to use these Sun Flowers. I fussy cut these flowers from a free publication called “Senior Scene.” They have really pretty covers, and the artist’s are Senior’s that are featured in the magazines. As I flipped through my large Dylusions book, all of my pages have been covered, some are complete, and some are calling to be finished; I felt like this page was calling out to me. This one would be great for me to use for my Sun Flowers.
The background started off as a Geli Plate pull that didn’t turn out that great. I got a new stencil and was trying it out. The stencil is by TWC Dolphins. Here is what it looks like, I have my dolphins facing to the right.
On a separate occasion I was using my “Spring Bloom” stencil with “Crushed Grape” paint. Inst that what our journal books are for? To experiment in!
I stamped some sticker paper with the Dylusions’ stamp set’s: “Further Round the Edge” in red rubber. The stamp on the left side of the page is: “Anatomy of a Page” -clear.
The tiny cats and birds are from the clear stamp set “Cat Among the Pigeons.” The cats were stamped on light blue and light pink card stock. The birds were stamped on printed card stock. Their quotes are from printed paper that I fussy cut out. It’s paper that I used to make my grand-daughter a Valentine’s card from. It had all these cute little quote bubbles all over it.
The snake was stamped onto printed card stock and stamped again on Kraft card stock. It’s from the set called, “Mischievous Malcom.” The owl is from “Heads N Tails” -Clear, stamped on brown card stock. The butterfly was stamped on some left over Valentine printed paper, it’ from the clear set “Flight of Fancy.” I stamped a stem from the set called “Everything’s Rosy,” onto green card stock.
Using the red rubber stamp set “Further Round the Edge.” I stamped onto 2 different shades of green card stock. Cut the words “Love is in the Air,” from magazines.
After I did this page, I kept playing and did this one too, I will most likely add to it later.
The back ground on this one is 2 Geli Pulls that didnt turn out too good. If you look close you can see teal flowers peaking through the yellow and bits from the other stamps in that set. Set called: “Background Love.”
Here is a list of the stamps used on this page: “Mischievous Malcom.” “Further Round the Edge.” “These Boots are Made.” “Right Up your Street.” “Doodle Parts.” “Bits of This.” And the dog is from Tim Holtz “Crazy Dogs.”
List of paints used: Calypso Teal, Lemon Zest, Pomegranate Seed.
Melted Chocolate Dylusions Spray ink, used on the Tree. Colored the dog, the girl, face, & head images, with Copic Sketch markers on X-Press IT blending card stock. The mushrooms and flower were colored with Dylusions Paint Pens. This page is the Left side to top page. I added a piece of wide washi-tape, (it’s the black & white fruit on the right side of the page,) because the pages were separating due to getting wet with spray inks on other pages.
This page came together quite quickly, almost all of the images were already colored. I only colored the: Arrow, house, and monster last night.
I think it needs something? I just don’t know what I want to add just yet? Do you have any suggestions?? Let me know.
