I have a few journal pages to share with you. The top 2 sets were actually single pages I had left over from my last journal - but they would not fit into the journal as it was so full. So, I taped them to paper and added them to my new larger journal. The last set of pages were actually completed in my new journal - it is larger than the last one. I used a Donna Downey floral stencil for the texture and the two sets of tulips on the pages are napkins skinned down to a single layer and added with gel medium. I did use ink splatters on my page, but instead of spraying the whole page, I used Lindy's Magicals and just peppered the mica on the textures and misted with water. I did a bit of stamping with a Bo Bunny texture stamp and added some chipboard. All-in-all, I like how this set turned out. Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
This is more of a clean mixed media page - but I like how it turned out. I used Prima's new release Timeless Memories set.
Mediums: Prima/Finnabair Art Basics Clear Gesso; Prima/Finnabair Art Basics Light Modeling Paste
Paper: Prima Timeless Memories 12x12 paper kit (which includes chipboard, sequins, flowers, and more)
Inks: Prima Bloom Spray Glistening Waves and Prima Bloom Spray Gold Foil (which I mixed together with the Light Paste)(and for splatters) and created texture behind the picture and in the bottom right corner); Ranger Vintage Photo around the edges; Black Staz-On for stamping
Stamps: Prima/Finnabair Vintage Vantage and Limor Webber/Indigo Blue Rugged Edges
Misc.: Circles made with bottle cap; Chipboard/feathers/sequins - part of Prima's Timeless Memories Paper Kit

This layout is just for fun - I saw a layout by Amy Voorthuis and modeled this after hers - different colors, etc., but same idea. I did ask Amy's permission first and she graciously gave it
I had some really old Thicker letters that I was going to toss - but decided to use those since they would be gessoed and embossed. I used 3 of the April Lindy Stamp Gang colors and kept the background fairly clean.

Inks: Lindy's Stamp Gang Greased Lightin' Green; Magnolia Magenta Gold; and Summer Lovin' Sun; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo around edges of all papers; Black Staz On
