Hello Lindy’s Gang friends! It is Natasha here and I am excited to be back on the blog today! For today’s project I had fun working in my journal with the beautiful new Steampunk Soiree Magicals and Starburst Sprays sets! They are truly beautiful, so let’s get started!
First I started by adding a strip of faux glassine paper to my journal on one side. I added this to add a bit of texture and dimension. Next I stamped images onto the background of the journal using Versafine Ink. I allowed the ink to dry, then it was time to add color to my journal page! I am super excited about the colors in these new sets, they are beautiful and so much fun to work with! I started with the Steampunk Soiree Magicals in my journal. To create the background, I used 2 colors from the new set: Petticoat Plum and Top Hat Teal. I spritzed my journal page with a bit of water, then added each of the colors above 1 at a time. Once one layer was complete, I allowed them to dry, then went back in to add a bit more color, including Glitzy Magicals in Gleaming Gold.
I allowed the page to dry on its own. Once it was dry, I added water droplets and picked up some excess color using a paper towel. I repeated this process a couple times to add a bit of texture. Next, I spritzed a couple panels of Mixed media paper using the Starburst Sprays in Petticoat Plum and Apothecary Azure, these are 2 new colors from the latest collection. Once dry, I die-cut a few circles. Next, I used a stencil in my stash to add more texture to each circle using a distress oxide ink in a similar color.
Next, I chose some ephemera from my stash for my journal. I applied distress inks to the edges of the ephemera. I then wanted to add a bit more texture to the journal background. I applied white gesso to the journal page using a brayer. I then added a bit of washi tape in various places. Next, I added more texture by adding splatter to the page using Lindy’s Flat Fabio Spray in the color Sidewalk Chalk. I added a few gold splatters as well.
Once the background was dry I determined the placement of all my elements, including a piece of cheese cloth that I sprayed with Petticoat Plum Starburst Spray. I then adhered everything to my journal using liquid glue. Once everything was adhered, I die cut a few hearts from the panels I created earlier. I added texture to the hearts using Chrome Doesn’t Pay Embossing powder. I glued down the hearts and added a sentiment to complete my journal page.
I had a lot of fun today and absolutely love the new sets! I will see you soon!
