Circle Journal #6

Hello!!!  I hope you are well!!!  I'm squeezing in a blog post before I head out the door for church.  

This is the journal I worked in back in August and it belongs to Marie.  Her shape, as you can see, is a circle.  This swap gets more exciting each month as when the next book arrives there are more pages completed because more people have had a chance to work in it.  Just a few more months and we'll be getting our own books back!!!

We were asked to complete one page, both sides, in Marie's book.  For this side I started with gesso allowing the brush strokes to show, stamped into the wet gesso (PaperArtsy stamp), and then shook on Infusions spraying on a bit of water as needed to help the color move.  I let this dry (or I might have used the heat tool).  The butterfly is a Tim Holtz stamp.  The quote is a PaperArtsy stamp.    

For the flip side I scraped on Fresco Finish paints, set the stencil (PaperArtsy) on and using a baby wipes removed paint.  I then put the matching stencil with dots on and added paint with a dabber.  I cleaned excess paint from the dabber by pressing it in the background.  

I stenciled with white paint using a mesh stencil. I stenciled an extra flower on cardstock, cut it out, and added some texture with a stylus.  Added some yellow to the flowers in the background.  Die cut some leaves, added color and shaping.  Stamped the quote (PaperArtsy) with Archival Ink jet black. Oh, there is also some script stamping in the background.    

Hopefully I haven't forgotten any details... August was a couple months ago :-))  Have a good one!!!!
