Jennie back with you today and again I am sharing those gorgeous Distress Crayons, this time in my art journal.
Some time ago I coloured these gorgeous wallflower die cuts with the Distress Crayons blending the colours with my fingers and then giving them a little spritz of water. They have been sitting on my desk just asking to be used, so I thought I would use them in a journal page.
I started with a pre-gessoed double spread and added some texture using a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Texture Paste.
I had planned to use the Distress Crayons on the page, but unfortunately they were a bit too heavy on the textured area, so I resorted to using the same colours but with Distress Inks instead.
I added some stamping using some of my favourite stamps.
A little too late I realised that the text would be too dominant for my quote which I wanted to stamp directly onto the page, so I knocked it back a bit with a baby wipe, although it does look as though it has been out in the rain!
I then layered my flowers onto the page using foam pads at the top of the flowers to give a little depth.
Finally I spritzed the pages using the Distress Spritzer Tool and Ground Espresso Distress Marker.
This is really quite a colourful page for me but I really love how using these Distress Crayons is widening my colour horizon! I hope they are doing the same for you!
Thank you for joining me today.
