By this point the journals were suffering a little from being stuffed full of loveliness and so I and to start with a layer of paper to keep the pages in the book so I chose a soft pale blue patterned paper from Nitwit. Once I got that down I decided what to do!
Whilst deciding I searched the Internet and came up with the idea of stars and so decided to find a quote and round this I came up with the plan for the page. I masked an area off for the star and then started applying spray inks and them dp gesso and paint. Then I added the dimensional paint in the silver round the edge of the star and then created the other stars... 10 in total for each of the raggy doll sisters!
I searched my Scrap booking stash for letter stickers etc and found the ones I used ... Including the fab flocked ones! Then I handwrote the rest of the quote. Finally it felt like it needed a frame so I doodled the edges.
For the tag I decided to stamp and heat emboss in clear the star shape and then I swiped the distress ink over the tag so it was coated with the exception of the embossed area. I then added little star sayings and quotes I liked in between the stars. Then another doodled border frame.
With all the ink on the other side this side was quite messy when I turned it over so I smoothed out the ink a little and then added silver acrylic and bubble wrap painted with the gesso to add the texture. Then I added all the sequin black stars to the top of the tag and added the journalling.
I have yet to finish my journal but hoping to get to it very soon and then I will share with you my finished journal page by page... Probably just in time to start our next one.
