Simon Says: Not A Card

This week on the Simon Says Monday Challenge we are challenged with making something other than a card.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at their store.

I've created a spread in my Small Dylusions Journal.

The first layer uses PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints (Amethyst, Cheesecake, Smurf, Captain Peacock) applied with my fingers.

Opaque Crackle Texture Paste was added through the TCW Mini Rosetta Stencil and left to dry.

Once dry more Fresco Finish Paints (Lilac, Turquoise, Antarctic) were used, this time applied with a brush to make it easier to paint over the crackle.

Stenciling through the PaperArtsy PS001 stencil with both Snowflake and Banana paint applying Snowflake first and then Banana.  I didn't wait for the white to get totally dry, just went in with white and then immediately the yellow over it.

Some stamping using a text image from PaperArtsy ESN11 and Archival Ink Garden Patina

Pieces of Composer Tissue Wrap torn and glued on with Distress Collage Medium Matte.

Then back in with some of the first colors of Fresco Finish Paints again using my fingers.

More stenciling using Antarctic paint through PS016 stencil this time adding the paint with a stencil brush to get a sharper image with no bleeding under the stencil.

Stamped an image from ETS11 using Amethyst paint.  Put some paint on your craft sheet, spread it thin with your finger, tap the stamp in the paint and then onto your page.  Be sure to clean your stamp before the paint dried on it.  Once the paint was dry, I used a White Gel Pen to add doodles and marks to the circle images.

Stenciling with Black Embossing Paste and PS045 stencil.  Once stenciled I used a heat tool to dry the paste.

Some PaperArtsy Treasure Gold brushed onto the center of the flower and rubbed around the edges of the spread.

Highlights added to the black stenciling with the White Gel Pen.  Idea-ology Stickers - "every" from the ChitChat pack and "day" from the Big Chat pack - were stuck on.  Distress Markers used a add a bit of color to them.  A black pen to add lines by the stickers and a border line around the spread.  The Distress Splatter Brush used to add splatter, first with Little Black Dress and then with Gold.  

I hope you've enjoyed the journal spread for this week.  I really enjoyed making it!!!  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Hugs, Wanda

This is such a pretty journal layout, Wanda and I adore the colours you've chosen to use, they look beautiful and blend so well to create the perfect background for the black silhouette of the stencil! :)

Ohhhh! What a treat to see these colors and a floral twist (I see you and I were on the same wavelength in our thinking this week)! I really love how you blended the colors so skillfully. This came together beautifully!
