Circle Journal 2 - Month 4

Hello Again!!!  I'm back with another circle journal post.  This is my page in Linda's book.  I even have a few process pics to share with you.

The pages of her book are heavy cardboard mailers and we were to do one side.  I began with a coat of Fresco Finish paint and then scraped Crackle Glaze over it.

I let that partially dry, brushed Chalk Fresco Finish Paint over it and left it to get those fabulous cracks.  Once it was completely dry I added translucent colors.

Stenciling and stamping over the page.  See that small square with the circles.... those are the plastic spacers taken out of Wink of Stella pens before you start using them.  I glued them to a piece of corrugated plastic and they make a wonderful stamp.

The leaves are stenciled with Grunge Paste and then inked.  Doodling along two edges.  Blue solid circles done with paint and a pencil eraser.  Highlights added to the dark blue circles.

I'm pretty sure this was a piece of cardstock with Distress Oxide inks on it.  I stenciled the leafy branch with gel medium, let it dry, and then foiled it using a heat laminator.

The small envelope was included with the book as something that could be used.  I added it to my page with a note tucked inside.  The quote is stamped onto, I think, tissue paper.  There some cheese cloth behind it.  Some chunky glitter (probably German glass glitter?).  A piece of gold mirror cardstock embossed with an embossing folder is behind the foil leaf piece.

What a beautiful page! The colours remind me of a tropical paradise and I love the texture from the crackle glaze - amazing 😁. Wishing you a happy and creative week! J 😊
