Hello everyone! I am excited to be back up on the Lindy’s blog with you today! I had a lot of fun creating today’s journal entry and I am excited to share my process with you, so let’s get started!
I started by working in my journal with the Totally 80’s Magicals collection. My background has 4 colors: Pretty in Pink, Bodacious Blush, Gag me with a Spoon Gray, and Midnight Rendevous. I start with 1 color at a time and spritz with water. Then I continue the process until all 4 colors are on the page. I then dry with my heat tool, spritz with water, and “pull up” the excess color with my paper towel. I then repeat the process until I have the color and textures I am looking for. I love adding water to the Magicals on the page, as this gives so much texture! I also went back in and added a bit of Glitzy Gold to add extra sparkle and shine to each page. I encourage you to layer the colors well! Its super fun and the textures are beautiful! Once my page was completely dry, I added a stencil called Peculiar Kind of Rainbow. I placed the stencil on the top page of my journal and applied Crackle paste through the stencil. I allowed this to dry. Then I added Alpine Ice Rose Shimmer spray to various sections of my journal. Next, I applied ink to various edges of the journal to add more texture and depth.
While my top page in my journal was drying I started to work on the bottom page. I applied Collage paper on the bottom right corner and applied this with collage medium. I then added White Gesso to the top of the Collage paper with a paintbrush. I applied the gesso to add a bit of texture. Once the stencil and collage paper/gesso were dry, I added stamping to both pages in my journal. I used a combination of black ink, as well as white pigment ink for several stamps.
Next, I die cut my butterfly using a die in my stash. I die-cut the butterfly image 2 times and adhered this together with liquid glue. I then added areas of Foundry Wax for added shine.
Next, I added white splatters to each page. Once the splatters were dry, I started to adhere all the elements in my journal. I used liquid glue to adhere the items in my journal. I added a couple sentiments to complete the page.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I can’t wait to see what you create with Lindy’s! I am sharing the Lindy’s supplies I used below!
