Hello again, do you remember the inside front cover of my altered book.
Here's how I made my first journal page in it.
I had already added some torn bits of book page to cover the rather heavy title type and a coat of gesso to knock it back a bit. I then added some texture paste into which I scored some vertical lines with a piece of card.
When this had dried I chose three colours of Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze, Ginger Peach, Carmen and Pomegranate. I used a coffee stick to draw a line of paint horizontally across both pages, then drew the stick through the line vertically to encourage the Silks to move as I added a few spritz of water and tilted the book.
Each colour was added separately and dried in between each layer.
I mopped around a bit with a baby wipe to get some weak colour on the empty bits of the page,
and stamped some patches of background stamps on top.
Whilst this dried I printed out a quote I stumbled across recently - "Art is your personal diary, where you may colour your thoughts and emotions on a page" - I have no idea where it is from but it fits perfectly with why I journal.
I chopped up the words, mounted them on black cardstock and positioned them on the page. I also added a stamped title, again layered on black cardstock and a few black and white inky splatters finished the page off... or not, I'm not sure!
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you gained some inspiration from my page, more to follow another day, when I hope you will join me again xx
