I’ts Lizzy with you today.
I’m always trying new products and techniques and this time I found a forgotten linseed (or flax seed) oil I had in my stash for years.
I preped some pages covering them with it, and found out that the paper looks more transparent and in some cases like vellum. The colors I applied look substantially deeper with Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays . I also noticed that the shimmer of the paint stays almost intact on the surface.

For this journal page I used one of the spectacular stencils by Patti Parrish
Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays used:
Pearlescents, Red Hot Poker Orange, Bonjour Butter and Winter Jasmine Gold
Here’s a little video so you can see how this page in my journal came to be. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Thank you all so much!!
Well how awesome is this?! WOW! You are so artistic! Will watch the tutorial to “look into this technique a little further”. hee hee Thanks for sharing!
Hi Lizzy, Great technique, love the way the linseed makes the lsg sprays more richer in colour. The linseed acts a resist to leave the shimmer/mica on the top. Cant wait to use this in my work.
Thank you Lisa!!
I loved watching you put this together Lizzy! What a great technique with the oil! Can’t wait to try it!
I enjoyed this video so much… I loved it when the page was just yellow/cream… then the book page was added with the stencil and I was in awe… I didn’t want anything else to be added b/c it was just beautiful – then things were added and I was thinking – oh no – it is going to be overkill (which I always do) but nooooooooo – every piece added was so beautiful and perfect! I think this page is beautiful – sooooooo well done! Perfect! Thank you for sharing!
