Dreams can come true

Here I am again with another journal page using the lovely Lynne Perrella stamps.

P1170025a

This page was created using the following steps - - - - -
Using a piece of watercolour paper, spray with no more than three co-ordinating colours, let them blend a bit and heat dry.
Spray with a darker shade of colour randomly through a stencil/mask, then turn it over and press the excess ink onto the paper in other areas. Heat dry.
Stamp using a texture stamp and white acrylic paint and dry.
Stamp your focal image and a flourish using black archival ink.
Use the faux bleach technique to remove some of the colour over your focal image, this makes it stand out a little more.
Use oil pastels to add some small spots of colour.
Print/stamp a saying and add to your page using a black pen to outline/doodle round it.
I ink the edges of my paper with walnut stain distress ink.

There you have some great layer steps which you could use to produce your own journal page.

Have a wonderful week and hopefully some creative time.
