A little while ago, no strike that, quite a while ago, I said I’d share a page and how I had created it.  I meant it, it’s just taken me a while as when I start working in my journals I don’t really think about what I’m doing, the page just evolves and then it’s too late to take photo’s to share with you as a step by step.  I guess I just work like someone possessed, or as my lot would say I’ve gone off being all arty farty. Nice huh! Grain of truth in it though.

With the exception of the stamps which are part of my own stash, all the products I’ve used are available in the store (yep – still waiting for images…sheesh but I have been assured that they are on their way on disc)


I started with watered down Claudine Hellmuth  Studio paint dribbled across the page and then the excess on the brush wiped off on it.  Then I’ve added torn pieces of book pages and added a little more colour to them with paint which I’ve then wiped off with a paper towel.

The second layer has been created using Prima and Crafters workshop masks and templates with colour wash ink sprays.  The Stars have been cut from papers in my scraps pile, the coloured and doodled with Derwent Inktense pencils.


A little more doodling around the Prima mask with inktense pencils.  The added extra black dots using the template and a black posca paint pen.


Finally, using one of my own stamps, I’ve added my favourite image and some more scraps of paper where I decided to add my journalling to the page.  Don’t know what you think but I love this page and fingers crossed you’ve enjoyed seeing my step by step. 


Right – postie has just been and there are two disks in the post that hold the promise of images for the store….. eeek, So excited. Wish me luck – again!
