Playing catch up after spending last weekend in Auckland with my sister Ailsa. The flights were my birthday and Christmas present – we shopped, went to libraries, talked, spent time with family, and had a wonderful time. I bought a bunch of summer clothes and got some real bargains.
CMP pages – Dina Wakley & Dylusions paints, stencils, Simon Says Stamp inkpad.
This week’s page uses Dina Wakley paints, a Stencil Girl stencil and FudeBall pen. I don’t normally include photos, especially of me, in my journal but it seemed appropriate this week.
Week 3 was about faces. I used Dina Wakley paints, stencils, pencil and a permanent pen. I watched a Dina Wakley video on drawing faces to get me started.
Week 4 was about roosters, to honour the Chinese New Year, and the year of the rooster. I used water soluble pencils.
Today’s video was with the fabulous Birgit Koopsen, whose work I love. I used her techniques to collage and paint the front cover of my Moleskin diary. I started with gelli printed tissue, then stencilled on the tissue with Tim Holtz and StencilGirl stencils, and stamped with a variety of older rubber stamps. I added a coat of gesso to the cover, then tore the tissue into pieces and adhered with gloss polymer. Once it was dry I used black and white Dina Wakley paint and my favourite StencilGirl stencils.
This was a fun project and I’m happy with the end result.
