An Art Journal page


Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

Back to wet & chilly weather yesterday,  I spent the whole day at my desk getting lost in my crafting.  
What better way to take your mind off of everything, it was a quiet day as Paul was in the office.  

I decided to make a Journal page today for a change, I used a Tim Holtz stamp set called "Flight of Fancy"  I bought it from a lovely lady called Julie on FB craft selling group, I also used my Crackle paste that I have had for months and not gotten around to using.  I started by using a piece of acetate to smoosh ink onto my background,  drying between layers, which helps to give the look of texture, next I used a stencil to add more detail in the same colours.  I stamped the details next and allowed those to dry, I then went in with some crackle paste that I coloured Tumbled glass distress oxide, I used it through the same stencil as I used for the ink.  
I added similar detail to the journal page that I was putting the piece on.  The final touches were the little clip and the pen nib, that I used to merge the two pieces together.

Maria I hope that you and Rick have a lovely time in Edinburgh xxx

Sending love and hugs to all of you,



  1. This is fabulous and how lovely to get lost in your crafting I finished a couple of Tracy Evans Snippets (using my version of stamps etc) and it was lovely to get lost in a world of inks, stamps and colouring if only for 20 mins or so
    Have a great time Maria
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Fabulous journel page. Love how you made it with all different layers.
    I wish you all a lovely long weekend and that the weather is holding up.
    We are on our second trek of the journey up to Edinburgh, had to change train in Manchester. Sadly our weather report doesn't look good but to have a few days with my half sister and celebrate her birthday together will be lovely .
    Take care everyone and have a nice day. Many hugs to you all, Maria xxx

  3. Hi everyone
    I absolutely love your journal page 😍
    Wet, windy, cold and miserable weather here. Mark came home and put the heating back on! Fingers crossed it improves over the weekend.
    Maria, have a lovely time in Edinburgh 😊
    Have a good evening everyone
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  4. Hello, a dry day, but very cold.

    Great journal page, love all the layers you have used. Crackle paste is one of my favourite mediums , I most get back to using it again.

    Managed to do a card today, first crafting for ages.
    Sleep well all Lilian

  5. Great journal page Sandra, you certainly know how to make your chosen colours work with each other.
    Miserable wet cold day today, the rain eased off late afternoon and around 5ish the sun came out but didn’t last very long. Let’s hope thw weekend will be better.
