Holyhock stamp by Dionna Downey for Unity Stamps, then heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
Nearly there! i could very easily have stopped at this point as I really love the way the flowers were looking, but I was determined to get writing ! So I penciled in some wavy guidelines, I used a plastic 'ruler' from a set of Tonic cutting strips, and used a Uniball White Pen to write the lyrics out, I was only going to copy a few lines but once I got started I just couldn't stop !
I've really enjoyed the two 'halves' of this project, the freedom of the splodging and painting with Distress Stains and the more controlled stage of outlining the flowers and writing with the pens. So I shall try not to shy away from writing in my journals in the future. I've been missing out ! x
Pretty much all of the supplies I've used for this project can be found in Kim's wonderful eclectic Paperie Shop. Click on any of the links below to be whisked straight there. I've included Dyan Reavley's Journal Block as this is the perfect size to create the wavy lines in the Dylusions Journal.
