Simon Says - Bright and Cheerful

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created a page in my Dylusions Small Creative Journal using favourite colours of Distress Oxide inks with the Splotches Mini Layering Stencil from Set 9, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Media Marks 1, Blockprint and Sizzix Alphanumeric CutOut Lower Thinlits

I began by applying a coat of Dina Wakley White Gesso on the pages
and blended Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide inks randomly on the background using the Splotches Mini Layering Stencil from Stencil Set 9
I inked the leaf stem image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Media Marks 1 with Black Soot Distress Archival and stamped directly on to the pages. To fill the gap at the centre of the journal, I stamped the image on to Idea-ology Plain Collage Paper, painted around it with a wet brush, teased apart and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I stamped the circle image from the stamp set, laid the stencil back in place, used a Sharpie Black Fineliner pen to outline some of the circles and added dots with a Sakura Black Gelly Roll Pen.
I stamped more of the images from the stamp set using Black Soot Distress Archival, Spiced Marmalade and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide inks and stamped the letters from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Blockprint inked with Evergreen Bough
I fixed Tim Holtz/Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to scraps of Classic Kraft Stock and die-cut using Sizzix Alphanumeric CutOut Lower and CutOut Script Thinlits
