I started on this journal a few weeks back
and decided to use the pages for snippets from the
lyrics of my favorite songs...
.... and then to do freehand writing on these pages!
It takes a bit more planning, but I wanted to do it.
So at the moment the plan is to continue with
this technique for this specific journal.
Mainly because I love working with
the Distress inks and stencils.
(but the plan may change...)
As you can see, the binding of the book will
come much later. The back of all of these pages are still blank
and I will have to work carefully when I colour them.
On this page I used a chipboard element that I coloured
with my Gelatos and water pen.
I did some stamping with a grey ink and
then I did some stenciling using my Distress inks.
For the lettering on the bottom, I used a bit of Distress stain to
colour the texture paste, to match the rest of the page.
There are three journals in progress at the moment.
This one is called Music in my Journal.
Then there is an art workbook for colours and techniques
and then a new journal filled with quotes on a specific topic.
The next art journal class will be all about
Remember there are no rules, have fun and create!
