The Accidental Journal Page

I find myself throwing very little away, especially when it comes to test printed pages and always put them to use in one way or another. I was doing some water coloured cards with black the other day and grabbed this sheet with the cycle printed on it! It didn't occur to me at first but picking it up today, I had that light bulb moment! I added a few lines to it and hey presto... the perfect journal page. That's going in my book!

Card, Colour and Embossing

Experimenting with white cardstock, Spectrum Aqua Pens, letterpress plates, stamps, stamping with anything other than your traditional stamp and clear embossing powder.

I really enjoyed doing these and created some pretty bits for my journal. I managed to achieve a great embossed image using a Todo letterpress plate and my Sizzix Big Shot. I also embossed with clear embossing ink on the plate, added clear embossing powder after, set, then added colour.

The lace boarder turned better than expected. This was achieved by stamping with clear embossing ink and lace which had a raised pattern, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The colours used were blossom, red violet and teal for the ombre colour effect.
