Hello everyone & welcome to our November photo tutorial at SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD!
I'm really happy of sharing with you how I created a journal page, using our current challenge here.
I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK BY LEAVING A COMMENT!
I was inspired by the quote, the doilies & the colors of the current mood board.
- Cut your patterned paper into small pieces then glue the pieces randomly onto your journal pages using gel medium, thus giving your pages some additional texture.
2. Cover almost all the surface with gesso then spray with 3 different colored mists.
3. Add some stamping, a paper doily, a lace ribbon & some gauze to create further texture
4. Now decorated your journal page spread with various embellishments.
Here are some close-ups...
You can see the variety of textures below.
Using different stamps on the background adds detail & texture without adding bulk.
This is especially important for a bound journal that has no capacity to expand
on both sides, as it avoids a book with a thin spine that becomes very thick on the other side & difficult to close without a clasp or elastic.
