Hello! Hope that February is treating you well. For my journal page this month I have given it a Valentine feel using the lovely new stamps from Emma Godfrey. The weather was decidedly overcast when I made this page so my apologies that the colours are a little drab!
Using white and pink paint on a damp brush I painted my journal page.
Then, using cut and dry foam and some of the left over paint, I added some stencilled hearts
Feeling brave (!) I added some blue hearts slightly off centre over the pink hearts
I love a shabby look to my journal pages so I gently sanded over the painted hearts
I then added some more stencils and again sanded them when dry
Then I had a lot of fun colouring four hearts and a stalk. You can use anything to colour these: Distress Markers; Dylusions Ink; paint; pencils etc. I added a smaller, central heart to anchor the month to the flower.
The sentiment is built up from the sentiments in the stamp set - you don't have to use them as the set suggests! I added gold paint and a few stamped elements in black to add a little contrast.
I hope you like my page! Thank you, as always for popping by.
