Hi there! It's Rachel Greig with you today to share an art journal page from my Dina Wakley Media journal. This spread uses one of the watercolour pages and one of the Kraft pages. I've created each page as a separate piece of artwork, but used colours that kept it consistent so they look good together as a double page spread.
I started by scraping some white gesso onto the watercolour card stock (left side) and then painting over the top with diluted paint. The diluted paint will lightly resist the gesso.
The two tags I used were coloured with Distress inks. The tag on the left was stamped with the Imperfection Quote Stamp and hearts from the Hearts stamp set. The tag on the right was stamped with the French Script Background Stamp before stamping two numbers from the Big Numbers stamp set. I trimmed two images from the Photo Booth collage sheets to adhere to the tags. The 'Happy Days' text is from the Art de Fleur Vol 2 stamp set. Tie some string at the top of the tags and adhere to the page as shown. This is a great way to use tags in your journals!
The Kraft page was super easy and quick! I stamped the Vine Border Stamp several times across the top of the page using Archival Jet Black ink. The quote from Art de Fleur Vol 2 Stamp set was stamped in the bottom right corner using Distress Embossing ink and embossed in gold embossing powder.
