The Colour Purple - Journal HeART week 18


Welcome back to Journal Heart guys. Looks like the great blogger tech let me down scheduling the last two weeks so I have done this on the day!!

This week's page is all about your fave my case Purples n Pink. Use your 2 favourite colours and black and white to create yourself a page of your own style. 

My page is made up of clean offs (brushes and baby wipes randomly swooshed over the page) and then stencilling on top. 

Nothing to complicated but fun bright and a happy page that is quick to produce when time has been in short supply recently

So off you go....look forward to seeing your creations!!

happy Journalling and Crafty Cheers for now!!

Life on a wire - Journal Heart Week 15

Good afternoon from a wild and windswept Cheshire!

Sorry this week is late, the BH sure got me all of a confused!!

So without further ado.....

This week is all about using new products. I know I have mentioned this before but anytime I get hold of new stuff I always christen them in a journal so I can get a feel for how they work and interact. 

This page started as a background of my new Dylusion paints. 
I got 6 of my fave colours to play with as I liked the look and potential. Though I have to stay hand on heart though the jury is still out in this craft lab - I love the colours but havent found a magic wow element yet. More playing will be needed...what a shame lol :-)

As is always the case I used new stencils to add layers. The trick with getting the layers to work seamlessly is too use the same colours as in your background..

So I took my largest design stencil and added orange dylusions spray and then my next two stencils were similar sized designs so I added the white gesso contrast and then the turquoise Dylusions Paint again through the new TH tyre tread stencil.

So have a go this week with any new stuff you have ( I am sure after Ally Pally some of you will have something!! ;-) ) and have a go at layering your stencils like here and see what you come up with!! 

Now I am off to do the next two weeks pages - praying they are going to schedule on here as I am off to Canada a week today for 5 days.....

Happy Journalling

Crafty Cheers for now
