Courage journal page.

Hi guys just another quick pop in to say Hi and to blog this journal page that I did last week in my lovely new long ledger.
Hope you like it!

Background done with re-inkers (told you I was addicted to the technique) and the mermaid is a digi download off etsy.  With the addition of a couple of Ryn's new water droplet stamps in the background using loads of different coloured Distress ink pads.
Quote stamped on old paper and embossed with clear embossing powder.
A simple page but I love it.
Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine!

June calendar Journal page

Hi everyone - I have finally got a couple of minutes to show you my calendar journal page for this month.  
For once I actually had it finished early but I haven't had the time to blog!! 
So here it its!

As you can see I am still playing with the reinker backgrounds!!! sorry but I really love them and they are so quick to do!!  
So after laying gesso down and letting it dry.  I added a few drops of reinker and spread it over the page with a splodger.  Splashed some water on it to make it run, then dried it!  Then a few splatters of ink with mica in it, which I let run.  Lastly a splatter of water to make more splats!!
Then it was just a matter of stamping the days, month and bird (both with a nice shadow stamped behind them). Some branches stamped round the edge in different colours and the date stamp put on.
Then I used an aquatone stick to create shadows round 2 sides of the shapes and blended it with a waterbrush.
Lastly a few dots of stickles on the title!!!
Well I hope you all enjoy the sunshine while we have it!!!
Have a great week.
xxxx Hugs xxxx
