AALL&Create Guest Designer Project - Pretty In Pink

Hi folks, I'm back with another AALL&Create Guest Designer project. This week I decided to christen my Dina Wakley Journal and create an Art Journal Page using the gorgeous Blossomed Numbers #109 stamp set designed by Tracy Evans and two of my favourite stencils designed by Autour deMwa #39 Lotza Dotz and #45 Digital Bubbles. You can find the AALL&Create products I used and a list of worldwide stockists HERE

I trimmed Dina Wakley Cotton Watercolor Paper to be slightly smaller than the Burlap Journal page and painted the background randomly with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Paints.
I stamped the large image from Blossomed Numbers #109 on to Distress Plain Collage Paper using Versafine Sepia Ink and coloured the circles on the reverse using Dina Wakley Blushing Acrylic Paint.
Once the paint had dried, I traced around the part of the image I wanted to use with a wet paintbrush, gently teased the paper apart and fixed to the panel using Distress Collage Medium Matte. I tapped the Digital Bubbles Stencil #45 into the remaining paint and transferred to the panel.
I cleaned off  the stencil and repeated that process with White Gesso. I mixed a little of the Blushing Paint with Ranger Opague Texture Paste and applied randomly on the background through the Lotza Dotz #39 stencil.
and added the larger dots using Ranger Opague Texture Paste
I stamped the large flower image and one of the circle images on to a scrap of Dina Wakley Cotton Watercolor paper using Versafine Sepia ink, coloured lightly with Blushing Paint diluted with water, fussy cut and fixed in place over the original stamped image.
I machine stitched around the edges of the panel and through the circle images, leaving the ends of the threads loose
 I added splatters of White Gesso
 I stamped the words from the stamp set on to scraps of Dina Wakley Cotton Watercolor card using Versafine Sepia ink, fussy cut and added to the panel
I fixed the panel to the Burlap page in the journal using Distress Collage Medium Matte
 and highlighted the circle images with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen

Have fun whatever you are creating
Toodle-oo for now
