G'day everyone from a freezing cold Melbourne. We are only in Autumn at the moment but today has felt like the middle of winter with ice cold air. I was very glad today to get home, put the heater on and rug up in my woolies.
My journal page is how I feel like I am going in circles trying to catch up, every time i cross something off my list I am adding another one or two things to do, feeling like I am treading water at times.
This is how the page started with left over sprays and wipes from ink projects etc.
I liked the pattern on this serviette so I tore it and stuck it down with Mod Podge
I chose my colours, Jo Sonja Gold Oxide and Teal Green hoping they will compliment each other.
I slipped my onion bag over the end of the journal so it could stretch out, filled a mini mister with water, added a few drops of Teal Green, shook and sprayed
then I dipped an end of a cardboard roll that came out of a roll of baking paper, into Teal Green and stamped over the page
here is a close up of the spraying and stamping.
I then sponged on some Gold Oxide using my new Crafters Workshop Stencil Mini Cosmic Bubbles.
and ended up with this.....
I then got out a new stamp I bought recently, a grungy one and stamped on the pages with StazOn Timber Brown
and it looked like this
Up until this stage all I new about this page was that I wanted to do circles. Then the words came and so I painted a track for my words with Smoked Pearl
To write my words i used a blue and green Sharpie and then a blue glitter gel pen because the letters weren't standing out. I also rubbed around the edges of the pages and in other places with the Impress Pale Aqua ink pad.
Here it is finished
Anyway, I have lots still on my list to do but doing this post has grounded me so I can keep moving.
I just heard on the news that we are expecting hail in the next day or two so i think I need to get my gloves out for work tomorrow.
I hope you are keeping warm or staying cool wherever you are, I am off to pour a nice hot cuppa and have a piece of Chocolate Brownie to warm my insides.
Breathe and Just Be.......
