Every month there will be a different technique and each week a different word prompt to hopefully inspire you.
You can make either a one off project or like me make a journal .
My first ever technique journal,nothing like diving right in there,lol!!
January technique is Painting
This weeks word prompt is Wish
Here is my first ever journal pages so please be kind,lol.
I am going to confess that i found it scary as i always work with patterned paper.
My background was so easy to create!
I started with a layer of gesso to give my pages a base, then i splodged [love that word,lol] some gold pearlescent straight onto the pages
I still wanted a more aged look so took some distress ink pads and with the blending tool worked it in around the edges of the pages.
For the heart i took some cardboard and took the backing of to reveal the corrugated board,then dry brushed with some gesso and the gold paint and finished with stamping the Wish sentiment.
Sprinkled some seed beads over the page and fixed in place, had fun stamping and adding embellishments and journalling.The wheels for me represent our life spinning faster and the car because we are all on a journey.
Wishes for me are getting simpler and more meaningful the older i get and all i want is to see my boys grow and live a happy and full life and to be a part of it.
I have been married for 23yrs to Alex and hope to spend many many more years with him.
Well that`s it for me today and hope you have enjoyed looking and to find out more then please pop by the Truly Madly Craft blog and hope you take up your brushes andcrack open your paints and get creating.Happy Sunday
