New Beginnings

Good Morning Crafters

Happy Monday to your all!

Today we have a tutorial to share with you from Carol.

Imagination Products used:

Tile Stencil

Stamp image on tissue paper with Memento ink. 
Colour on the front with Promarkers. 
To ensure snowdrops show white paint on the reverse with white acrylic paint. 
"New Beginnings" is computer generated and printed onto tissue paper....
(attach a small piece of tissue to an A4 sheet of copy paper with stencil tape and run through the printer as normal.

 Journal pages have been roughly painted with white acrylic, then once dry inked up with various distress inks. 
 Using the same distress inks to stamp various stamps over the background.
Stencil and texture paste used in two corners and everything left to dry thoroughly overnight.
Various sentiment stamps and date stamp were stamped onto tissue with Archival ink.
 Image and sentiments were placed on the journal then attached with gel medium.

Splats were stamped in black Archival ink and using a toothbrush to splatter some white distress paint.

I love these pages and I hope it has inspired you all.
