My Inspiration Journal.

Hi there Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Time to share  another project with you all.   This journal was made for Imagination Craft's ODS show on 2nd. June 2017.   These journals have canvas backs and fronts and are primed with white paint, so you can begin straight away.   The front and back can be taken off the spiral, in order to decorate them , then can be fixed back in position afterwards.

                                                      This is the front of the journal.

The front and back of the journal were taken off the spiral in order to decorate them.   Both were sprayed with the four Mixed Media Inks - Lt. green, Sunshine, Orange and Dk. brown and left to dry.

Dahlia stencil flower added to the top left using the Pink blossom Starlight paint with a stencil brush, followed with the Blue sapphire Sparkle Medium around the petal edges ( the foiling technique),

The poppies were added to the bottom of the journal, using the  Jade Starlight paint and the Blue sapphire Sparkle Medium.

The dragonflies were done with the Gold Starlight paint, followed with some Ruby gold Sparkle Medium, stencil removed and images left to dry.

Apologies for the above photo, a little on the light side lol!   The words stamped in black ink, followed by ove-rstamping with a Versamark pad and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, to give a shadow effect on the letters.

Dots added through the stencil onto the top right and bottom left, using  stencil medium and a metal spatula, then left to dry. 

That is the front cover finished.   We now turn our attention to the back  cover.   Having already coloured this with the Mixed Media inks at the same time we did the front, we now lay the orchid stencil on the bottom left and stipple the Jade Starlight through the design, finishing with the Blue sapphire Sparkle Medium around the edges of the petals, as previously.


When dry, lay the Butterfly fairy stencil on the top of the orchid plant, as if she were sitting on it and spread the Ruby gold Sparkle Medium over the fairy and the Silver dollar over her wings.

                 Spread the Blue sapphire over the butterflies, remove the stencil and leave to dry.  


                                       Stamp the words as for the front cover of the journal.

Add some Stencil  Medium  through the dots using  stencil nos. MU41 and MU17, using a metal spatula.   Fix the covers back onto the spiral.

Add some copper Alchemy wax to the spiral of the journal.    That is it finished.    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.   Enjoy the rest of your week.   Stay safe and above all,  be happy!

                                                             Love and rainbows,
                                                             Hugs   Jennifer xx,
