Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you all are managing to keep cool in this heat, I didn't venture outside most of the day, my heart doesn’t fare well in the extreme heat, only because your body has to work harder to move around in the higher temperature. So I had a relaxing day in my craft room, with the fan on too keep us cool, the only time it was a problem was when I used Gilding flakes and Embossing powder!
Today's Journal page was the result of my play session yesterday. I started the page off my smooshing Victorian Velvet Distress Ink into my craft mat and picked it up with a cello bag and smooshed it onto my page. I then stamped some background stamps around the page, for texture I added some texture passste and when it was dry i added some Gilding flakes here and there, just for sparkle. I then started on the tag, the main image is a stamp by Sam Poole, I stamped the butterfly twice and watercoloured the top one using the Victorian Velvet distress ink and a waterbrush. I added a swoosh of Sparkle pen over the top. I wanted to add so 'softness' so I added the butterfly lace trim and some pearl string down one side of the tag. I created a separate little tag using a stamp from the same Sam Poole stamp set, I cut the definition out of a dictionary and tore the edges so that it blended into the tag better. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, I hope it inspires you a little.
I hope that you all have a comfortable day, take it easy my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all,
