Journaling Page Snippets

Hi there and happy Saturday!  Excited that it's the weekend and hoping I can find some time to play in my Dylusions journal!  I am in love with my journal and I shared a bit more about my journey into free form creating on my blog yesterday.  Check it out for specific details on the page below.  Today I wanted to share some of the pages I've been working on and a bit more about the products that I am LOVING!

To start....Embossing Paste from Wendy Vecchi.  If you don't have it...your life won't be complete until you get it!  I tried the white out for the first time last night (see the page above) and talk about fun!  Oh my...Great texture and dimension!  I plan to add a bunch more to the page but had to just share what the plain white paste looks like.  I also used Wendy's Large Heart stencil and the Chevron stencil from The Crafters Workshop.  Speaking of stencils, I'm enjoying using Dyan's collection for my borders (the Letter Jumble stencil was used on the edges of the pages above) and Wendy's for larger spots (the heart) and The Crafters Workshop for everything in between!
 Now let's talk Dylusions Ink Sprays...They are amazing and so much fun!  I've been playing with different color combos, different designs, and have spent some time just inking the journaling pages and leaving them for further decoration later.  Speaking of the journal...get it.  No, I'm serious.  If you love this kind of work, the journal is perfect.  Great size, really heavy duty pages, a ton of pages, and a great heavy duty cover.

Want to give altered journaling a try?  Anyone can do it and it can be any style of design that you love!  Here are my recommended products to get started:

Dylusions Journal
Dylusions Ink Sprays
Stencils (Studio 490, Crafters Workshop, Dylusions)
A few stamp sets (look for one with great background images and sentiments)
Embossing Paste (white and/or black)

That's all you need to get crafting!  And then share your work with us on our Facebook page!  I would adore seeing you work and sharing in your creativity...

Enjoy!

Love the background on the first journal spread. It's so vibrant and has lovely texture and dimension. The second spread is fabulous! That sun makes me smile! Great inspiration. I think I'll be getting some of that embossing paste. Amazing results.
